A field experiment entitled “Integrated nutrient management in bold seeded summer groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)’’ was carried out at College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during the summer season of 2016. The experiment comprising ten treatments of nutrient management viz., T1 (control),T2 [Biofertilizer (Rhizobium and PSM)],T3 (FYM 5 t ha-1), T4 [100% RDF (25-50-50-20 kg N-P2O5-K2O-S ha-1)], T5 (50% RDF + 50% N through FYM), T6 (50% RDF + 50% N through FYM +Biofertilizer),T7 (75% RDF + Biofertilizer), T8 (75% RDF + 25% N through FYM), T9 (75% RDF + 25% N through FYM + Biofertilizer) and T10 (75% RDF + 25% N through Vermicompost + Biofertilizer) were evaluated in randomized block design with three replications. The experimental soil was clayey in texture, low in N, medium in available P, K and S. Bunch groundnut variety ‘GJG 31’ was tested in the experiment. The experimental results revealed that significantly higher values of growth parameters viz., plant height, plant spread, number of branches plant-1, number of root nodules plant-1 and root length; yield attributes viz., number of mature pods, pod weight plant-1 and yield viz., pod yield (2324 kgha-1) and haulm yield (3080 kgha-1); quality parameters viz., shelling per cent, 100 kernel weight, oil content and protein content were recorded under the application of 75% RDF + 25% N through FYM + Biofertilizer. Significantly, being at par with application of 50% RDF + 50% N through FYM + Biofertilizer, 75% RDF + 25% N through Vermicompost + Biofertilizer, 100% RDF (25-50-50-20 kg N-P2O5-K2O-S ha-1) and 50% RDF + 50% N through FYM.
