Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the Effect of phosphorus levels through INM packages on nutrient uptake by groundnut at College of Agriculture, UAHS, Shivamogga during 2015-2016. Results revealed that the higher uptake of major nutrients N, P, K Ca, Mg and S were noticed by haulm, shell and kernel of groundnut due to application of 75 % of 30 kg P2O5 ha-1 through CF + 25 % through FYM + PSB (T6) compared to rest of the treatments. However, uptake by haulm with highest N uptake followed by Ca, K, Mg and S uptake, uptake by shell found to be higher uptake of Ca followed by N, Mg, K, P and S and kernel found to be higher uptake of Ca followed by N, K, Mg, P and S was noticed.
