Author(s): Basavaraj Baraker, SK Jha, SP Wani and Kaushal K Garg

Abstract: An experiment was carried out during Kharif season of 2016 at Hiregundgal District: Tumkur (Karnataka) at five location under the project of Bhoo Samruddhi collaboration between KSDA (Karnataka State Department of Agriculture) and ICRISAT (International Crop Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics Agriculture). To study the “Effect of improved management practices on factor of productivity on Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Cultivation”. Application of recommended dose of fertilizer (25:50:25 NPK+ Gypsum @ 500kg ha-1 at 30 DAS) along with micro nutrient (ZnSO4@ 25 kg ha-1 & Borax @ 10 kg ha-1 at basal application) gave higher growth characters viz., plant height, leaf area plant-1, total dry matter plant-1, leaf area index, crop growth rate, relative growth rate, and yield attributes & yield viz., number of pods plant-1 (37.02), weight of pods plant-1 (32.70 g), pod yield(1633.95 kg ha-1), haulm yield (2059.89 kg ha-1) of groundnut crop. Whereas, lower growth characters, yield attributes & yield were observed in only recommended dose of fertilizer (25:50:25 NPK+ Gypsum @ 500kg ha-1 at 30 DAS).
