Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during Zaid season of 2023 at Crop Research Farm Department of Agronomy, Naini Agriculture Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Sciences and Technology. The experiment was laid out in RBD (Randomized Block Design) with 10 treatments each replicated thrice. To determine the “Influence of Sulphur and Liquid Organic Nutrient on Growth and Yield of Groundnut.’’ The result revealed that treatment 9 [sulphur (40 kg/ha) + seaweed (3%)] recorded significantly higher plant height (37.36 cm), maximum number of nodules/plant (18.66), higher plant dry weight (25.38 g), maximum number of pod/plant (24.92), higher number of kernels/pod (2.60), higher seed index (41.92 g), higher seed yield (2.72 t/ha), higher haulm yield (6.33t/ha) and higher harvest index (30.01%).

Keywords: Groundnut, sulphur, organic nutrient, growth & yield
