Abstract

The field investigation was conducted at experimental farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, VNMKV, Parbhani, during summer season to find out results of yield and economic parameters. The experimental field was levelled and well drain. The soil was clay in texture, low in nitrogen, medium in phosphorous, medium in potash and alkaline in reaction. The experiment was laid out in a Split plot design with 12 treatment combinations, which comprised of four land configurations and three varieties. The main plots treatments were L1- Ridges and furrows, L2- BBF, L3- Sara method and L4- Flat beds and varieties were LGN-1, TAG-24, and SB-XI. Each experimental unit was replicated three times. Amongst land configuration BBF recorded significantly higher yield parameters viz., Dry pod yield plant-1 (g), 100 kernel weight (g), kernel yield (kg ha-1), Dry pod yield (kg ha-1), haulm yield (kg ha-1), biological yield (kg ha-1), harvest index (%) and in Economic parameter gross monetary returns (Rs ha-1), net monetary returns (Rs ha-1) and Benefit cost ratio (%) followed by Ridges and furrows. Among the varieties TAG-24 recorded highest values of yield and economic parameters as compared to the varieties SB-XI and LGN-1.

Keywords: Summer groundnut, commercial cultivation, nutrients, harvest index
