Response of Groundnut to Balanced Fertilisation and Omission of Potassium

On-farm and on-station trials showed that balanced fertilisation (i.e., applying the right rates of N, P, K, S, Zn, B, and Ca) helped in maximising groundnut yield, nutrient uptake, and farmer profitability. Skipping of K application to groundnut for one-season results in a yield loss of 335 kg/ha, in addition to the depletion of about 34 kg/ha of soil K reserves.
