Abstract:
A field experiment entitled, “Effect of inorganic and bio-fertilizers on growth, yield and quality of summer groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)” was conducted at PG Research Farm, Agronomy Section, RCSM College of Agriculture, Kolhapur during summer, 2019. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) with three replications and nine treatment combinations of three inorganic fertilizer levels F1- 75% of RDF (18.75:37.5:0 kg ha-1), F2- 100% of RDF (25:50:0 kg ha-1), F3- 125% of RDF (31.25:62.5:0 kg ha-1) and three bio-fertilizers levels B1- Control, B2-Rhizobium spp.+ PSB (Lignite based), B3- Rhizobium spp.+ PSB (Liquid based). The application of 100% of RDF ha-1 was comparable with 125% of RDF ha-1 significantly over 75% RDF ha-1 in respect of recording higher value of the growth attributes viz., plant height (cm), number of branches plant-1, plant spread plant-1 (cm), dry matter plant-1 (g), number of nodule plant-1 and weight of nodule plant-1 (g). The dual seed inoculation of Rhizobium spp. + PSB (Lignite based) as well as Rhizobium spp. + PSB (Liquid based) in respect of recording higher value of growth attributes viz., mean plant height (cm), plant spread (cm), number of branches, dry matter plant-1 (g), number of nodule plant-1 and weight of nodule plant-1 (g).
