Abstract: In order to evaluate the effects of different combinations of organic and inorganic fertilizers on yield and yield attributes of groundnut and wheat, a field experiment was conducted at Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand, and Gujrat. These two crops were tested during 2013 and 2014 under six fertilizer treatments (T1 = 75% N (FYM) + 25% N (Vermicompost), T2 = 50% N (FYM) + 50% N (Castor Cake), T3 = 50% N (FYM) + 25% N (VC.) + Azotobactor/Rhizobium + PSB (Seed treatment)), T4 = NPK as per STV, T5 = RDF + 5 t FYM /ha) and T6 = RDF + ZnSO4/Gypsum) in a randomized block design. The results of present investigation revealed that the application of 50 % N (FYM) + 25 % N (V.C.) + Rhizobium + PSB (ST) (T3) had significant effect on haulm yield of groundnut (4622 kg ha-1),and the application RDF-NPK as per STV (T4) had significant effect on grain yield of wheat. The increased haulm yield in groundnut was to the extent of 11.8 percent over treatment T4, which received NPK as per STV and recorded minimum yield of 4067 kg ha-1 haulm. The increase in yield of wheat grain under inorganic treatment T4 was to the extent of 14.1 respectively over other treatments. The yield attributes also exhibited similar trend with a significantly increased response due to organic and inorganic treatments in groundnut and wheat respectively.
