Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during summer season of 2012 in loamy sand soil of agronomical farm, C.P.C.A., S.D.A.U., S.K. Nagar to study the effect of soil application of FYM with combination of Fe and Zn with recommended dose of N (25 kg ha-1) and P (50 kg ha-1) on growth, yield and quality by groundnut crop under North Gujarat Agro-climatic condition. Application of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 with 5 kg Fe ha-1 + 4 kg Zn ha-1 to groundnut considerably increased yield, yield attributes and quality parameters. The maximum cost benefit was obtained in groundnut crop with application of FYM @ 5 t ha-1 with 5 kg Fe ha-1 + 4 kg Zn ha-1.

Keywords
