Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2018 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Hiriyur, University of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences, Shivamoggato study the effect of various levels of hydrogel, farm yard manure (FYM) and mulching on growth parameters, yield attributes and economics of groundnut cultivation under the rainfed condition. Results revealed that, treatment with the application of recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) along with hydrogel @ 4 kg ha-1 and FYM @ 10 t ha-1 was recorded significantly higher plant height (6.45, 17.83 and 30.14 cm) and number of branches (4.91, 7.52 and 9.27) at 30, 60 and 90 DAS, respectively and also yield attributes viz., number of pods per plant (25), pod yield per plant (4.57 g), shelling percentage (67.41%), dry pod yield (1470 kg ha-1), kernel yield (991 kg ha-1) and haulm yield (3114 kg ha-1) at harvest with higher gross returns (Rs.62, 560 ha-1), net returns (Rs.25, 760 ha-1) and benefit-cost (B: C) ratio (1.70). Significantly lower growth and yield attributes were noticed in treatment with no hydrogel and manure application.
