The main constraints hampering higher yields and quality of groundnut in Karnataka could be attributed to several production constraints, which may biotic and abiotic stresses include poor and imbalanced nutrition. Therefore, plant nutrition plays a vital role in increasing production and productivity of groundnut. Fertilizer application normally results in increased crop yields up to certain levels. However, the exact time and dose of fertilizer application is also important for successful exploitation of the crop’s potentiality in terms of yield. Nowadays it is well established that phosphorus application in groundnut has tremendous impact on growth and development in groundnut and also yield attributes. It is one of the most important strategies particularly in the wake of intense energy crisis, and improvement in fertilizer phosphorus use efficiency in order to exploit the native soil phosphorus for groundnut production. Present investigation consists of 10 treatments sponsored by Directorate of Groundnut Research, Junagadh, Gujarat, conducted at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research station, Hiriyur, Chitradurga District on groundnut, during Kharif 2015-16 on economizing phosphorus use in groundnut production by exploiting phosphorus Build up in the soil. The data revealed that among treatments, 50% P + DGRC-2 (2229 kg/ha) resulted in increased pod yield of groundnut followed by application of 50% P + DGRC-1 (2208 kg/ha).

Keywords: Groundnut, Phosphorus, Nutrient uptake, Growth and pod yield.
