Abstract


A field experiment was conducted to assess the fertilizer requirment of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) - maize (Zea mays) cropping system on Vertisol of western Maharashtra plain zone. Dry pod and haulm yield of the summer groundnut were increased significantly due to the integrated nutrient management treatments. Maximum and significantly higher dry pod (36.34 q ha-1) and haulm (51.07 q ha-1) yield were recorded due to the application of 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Rhizobium + PSB.Application of 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Rhizobium + PSB to preceded groundnut and 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Azobacter + PSB to succeeding maize recorded maximum maize seed yield (36.23 and 40.30 q ha-1) and stover yield (50.99 and 54.96 q ha-1), respectively. However, application of 75 % RDF + 25 % N through FYM + Rhizobium + PSB to preceded groundnut and 75 % RDF + 25% N through FYM + Azobacter + PSB to succeeding maize recorded maximum groundnut equivalent yield (51.70 and 51.55 q ha-1), respecively
