Groundnut (Arachishypogaea L.) is one of the most important leguminous crops. The groundnut seed contains about 45 to 50% oil, 25 to 30% digestible protein, 20% carbohydrate and 5% fiber and ash which make a substantial contribution to human nutrition. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to improve the growth, yield and yield components as well as nutrient status of groundnut grown on newly reclaimed sandy soil by applying NPK levels as a soil fertilizer alone or combined with… CONTINUE READING
