Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during zaid season of 2020 at SHUATS Crop Research Farm (CRF), Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Prayagraj (UP) on sandy loam soil so as to evaluate the effect of iron and molybdenum on growth and yield of groundnut. The treatment consisted of 3 levels of Iron viz., FeSO4 15 kg/ha soil application, 1% FeSO4 foliar spray and 7.5 kg/ha soil application + 1% FeSO4 foliar spray and 3 levels of Molybdenum viz., (NH4)6Mo7O24 at 0.5 kg/ha, (NH4)6Mo7O24 1.0 kg/ha and 1.5 kg/ha. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with ten treatments replicated thrice. Study revealed that with application of 7.5 kg/ha FeSO4 soil application and 1% FeSO4 foliar spray + 1.5 kg/ha of (NH4)6Mo7O24 recorded significantly higher plant height (60.20 cm), number of nodules/plant (50.66) and maximum plant dry weight (57.80 g) at harvest stage as compared to other treatment combinations. The treatment with application 7.5 kg/ha FeSO4 soil application and 1% FeSO4 foliar spray + 1.5 kg/ha of (NH4)6Mo7O24 also recorded significantly higher number of pods/plant (16), number of kernels/pod (2.13), grain yield (2940.97 kg/ha) and haulm yield (4400.93 kg/ha) as compared to all the treatment combinations.
