Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Shirgaon, Ratnagiri (MS) on the lateritic soil during Rabi 2013-14 to 2015-16 to study effect of plant population and fertilizer doses on growth and yield of summer groundnut. The treatment comprises four main plot treatments of planting geometry and three sub-plot treatments of levels of fertilizer replicated three times in split plot design. Groundnut cultivar, TKG Bold sown with planting geometry 20 X 10 cm (plant population @ 5 lakhs ha-1) with application of 125% RDF level noticed significantly highest pod, kernel and haulm yield of groundnut, which was followed by planting geometry 25 X 10 cm (plant population @ 4.0 lakhs ha-1), 30 X 10 cm (plant population @ 3.33 lakhs ha-1) and 30 X 15 cm (plant population @ 2.22 lakhs ha-1) with same fertilizer level i.e.125% RDF. The groundnut cultivar, TKG Bold sown with planting geometry 30 x15 cm (Plant Population of 2.22 lakhs ha-1) and fertilized with 125% RDF level (P1F3) recoded significantly highest number of pods plant-1 and pod weight plant-1 over rest of treatment combinations. However, the highest benefit to cost ratio was observed in planting geometry 30 X 15 cm with 125% RDF level (P1F3).


Keywords: Plant population, Levels of fertilizer, Economics, Dry pod yield.
