Abstract:

Groundnut production depends on the genetic potential of the cultivar and the cultural practices to which the crop is subjected. There are several constraints in groundnut production viz. fertilizer, plant protection and weed management often pose serious problems. Therefore, present study was carried out to focus on such limiting factors individually or in combination which may cause more yield reduction under resource constraint. The study was formulated on lateritic soils of konkan at Agricultural Research Station, Shirgaon, Tal. Dist. Ratnagiri (MS) during Kharif 2011-2013 (three years) in Randomized Block Design with three replications which imposed of 8 different treatments. The results revealed that, application of full package as per recommendation recorded significantly highest pod yield (3.82 kg/ha) with 1:2.72 B:C ratio over the full package of practices excluding fertilizer, plant protection, weed management practices in alone and also in combinations of these limiting factors. The reduction in pod yield due to exclusion of plant protection, weed and fertilizer management from full package of practices as per recommendation was to the tune of 20.81%, 31.46% and 39.34%, respectively. However, the improvement in pod yield was followed by application of full package of practices excluding plant protection 3.03 t/ha and 1:2.23 B:C ratio, weed management 2.62 t/ha and 1:2.08 B:C ratio and fertilizer management 2.32 t/ha and 1:2.15 B:C ratio.
