Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2015 at Agronomy Farm, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner, Jaipur (Rajasthan) with groundnut variety RG-382 (Durga) on loamy sand alkaline soil under irrigated condition. The treatments consisted 20 combination of 5 organic manures viz. control, FYM @ 10 t/ha, poultry manure @ 5 t/ha, vermicompost @ 4 t/ha and RDF) and four levels of molybdenum viz. control, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg Mo/ha through sodium molybdate which were tested in factorial RBD replicated thrice. The results revealed that application of poultry manure @ 5 t/ha recorded highest values of pod yield (2517 kg/ha), haulm yield (3517 kg /ha, protein content (25.30%),oil content (48.39%) and oil yield (912kg/ha).It was closely followed by vermicompost @ 4.0 t/ha pod yield (2446 g/ha), haulm yield (5814 kg/ha), protein content (24.86%),oil content 47.12 % and oil yield (846 kg/ha) while in case of net return (Rs 78652 / ha) and B:C ratio (2.18), RDF followed the poultry manure. Higher cost of vermicompost reduced net return (Rs. 74196/ha) and B: C ratio (1.54). Increasing levels of molybdenum increase all above parameters with up to1.5 kg Mo /ha having the values of pod yield (2522 kg/ha) haulm yield (3437 kg/ha), net return (Rs. 89453 /ha), B: C ratio (2.37), protein content (25.56%), oil content (48%) and oil yield (913 kg/ha). It was followed by 1.0 kg/ha with the values of pod yield (2450 kg/ha), haulm yield (3277 kg/ha), net return (Rs. 83973/ha), B: C ratio (2.19), protein content (24.56 %), oil content (46.89 %) and (820 kg/ha) all bring at par with 1.5 kg Mo /ha application.
