Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during summer season 2012 at Agronomy Farm, B.A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, to study the effect of conjunctive use of phosphorus and bio-organics on growth and yield of summer groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) under middle Gujarat conditions. Results revealed that phosphorus application significantly influenced phosphorus content. Treatment 50 kg P2O5 ha-1 recorded significantly higher phosphorus content in kernels (0.48%) and it was remained at par with treatment 25 kg P2O5 ha-1 (0.45%). Results indicated that the effects of bio-organics levels in respect of phosphorus content in kernels were found to be significant. Phosphorus content in kernels was significantly higher under treatment Vermicompost 2 t ha-1 (0.48%) which was remained at par with treatment PSB seed treatment 5 ml kg-1 seed (0.47%). Highest phosphorus uptake recorded with 50 kg P2O5 ha-1 treatment but bio-organics did not have any significant effect on phosphorus uptake. The results revealed that treatment combination of 50 kg P2O5 ha-1 + Vermicompost 2 t ha-1 recorded significantly higher phosphorus content in kernel (0.54 %) which was remained at par with treatment combination of 25 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB seed treatment 5ml kg-1 seed (0.53 %) and treatment combination of 50 kg P2O5 ha-1 + PSB seed treatment 5ml kg-1 seed (0.48 %).
