Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is a major oilseed crop of our country and edible oil economy primarily depends upon groundnut production. Intensive cropping leads to deficiency of secondary and micronutrients, which is the main constraint for low yield of groundnut. Field experiment was conducted at agricultural college farm, Mahanandi during rabi season, 2015-16 to study the response of groundnut to secondary and micronutrients. The results revealed that the highest pod yield was recorded in the treatment with application of RDF + foliar application of one per cent each of CaNO3, MgNO3 and sulphur + micronutrient mixture @ 0.2 per cent (T10) (2654 kg ha-1) and it was significantly superior over control (T1) (1118 kg ha-1). All other yield components were also significantly higher over recommended dose of fertilizer and control.
