EVALUATION OF MICRO-IRRIGATION, FERTIGATION AND WEED MANAGEMENT IN SUMMER GROUNDNUT


R. K. Mathukia

Abstract


A field investigation was carried out at Junagadh during the summer seasons of 2011 and 2012 to evaluate the comparative efficacy of irrigation methods, fertigation and weed management in groundnut. The results revealed that irrigation-fertigation through sub-surface drip system was proved to be superior in respect of pod yield, weed biomass, WUE and economics. Among weed management practices, two hand weedings at 30 and 60 DAS was found to be the most effective in controlling weeds along with higher pod yield, WUE and net returns.
