Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during rabi 1999–00 and kharif 2000 to evaluate the performance of two large seeded groundnut varieties (B95 and GG5) under two land configuration systems (broad bed and furrows and flat bed) and four nutrient management practices (recommended dose of NP, recommended dose of NPK, recommended dose of NPK + gypsum @ 500 kg/ha, recommended dose of NPK + gypsum @ 500 kg/ha + ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/ha). The results revealed that there was no significant variation in pod yield between these two varieties though the two varieties differed significantly in respect of yield attributes. Flat bed system of configuration registered the maximum values of yield attributes and pod yield as compared to broad bed and furrows. Among the different nutrients, application of recommended dose of NPK + gypsum @ 500 kg/ha + ZnSO4 @ 25 kg/ha had higher pod yield which was comparable with the yield obtained under recommended dose of NPK + gypsum @ 500 kg/ha. However the BCR was highest with application of recommended dose of NPK + gypsum @ 500 kg/ha.
