Abstract

The present study was aimed to improve the growth and yield of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) under foliar spray of panchagavya and leaf extracts as organic source of nutrient. The experiment was conducted during Kharib 2010. The  results revealed that foliar application of panchagavya + leaf extract of  neem recorded significantly higher number of nodules, number of pods per plant, pod weight per plant , pod yield , haulm yield and harvest index as compared to other treatments. Panchagavya + leaf extracts of neem recorded significantly higher 100 kernels weight , shelling per cent, nutrient uptake of N and P, oil content over other sources. Foliar application of panchagavya with leaf extract of plants both at branching and flowering stages was found most effective with respective to nutrient uptake of N and P kernels and haulms as compared to single application either at branching or flowering stage.
