Abstract: A experiment was conducted at Post Graduate Research Farm, College of Agriculture, Kolhapur during kharif season of 2017 to study the effect of levels and time of potassium application on different chemical properties and nutrient status of soil after harvest of kharif groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) in Entisol. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with two replications comprising of four levels (0, 20, 30,40 kg K2O ha-1) and five time of application (Sowing, flowering, pegging) of potassium. The results revealed that successive increase in levels of potassium showed significant effect on uptake of primary nutrients i.e. N, P, K recorded with 40 kg K2O/ha and chemical properties and their intractions (L X T) were non significant on soil chemical properties i.e pH, EC, Organic carbon and per cent calcium carbonate equivalent and available N, P, K, S and exchangeable Ca, Mg of soil after harvest of groundnut.
