A field experiment was carried out during 2011-12 and 2012-13 at MPKV, Rahuri (M.S.), to evaluate the groundnut based cropping systems (groundnut-onion, groundnut-wheat and groundnut-chickpea) under different nutrient management treatments. The yield target of 25 q ha-1 was achieved in kharif groundnut by application of fertilizer as per STCR (23.08 and 24.49 q ha-1) equation with less than 10 % variation during both years of experimentations. Among the cropping systems, groundnut–onion cropping system recorded significantly maximum total system productivity (67.21 and 89.17 q ha-1), production efficiency (30.16 and 39.96 kg ha-1 day-1) and economic efficiency (Rs. 620.66 and 1064.26 ha-1 day-1) than rest of the cropping systems. Similarly, groundnut- onion cropping system obtained significantly maximum gross monetary returns (Rs. 2,31,903 and Rs. 3,34,409 ha-1), net monetary returns (Rs. 1,38,207 and Rs. 2,37,982 ha-1) and B:C ratio (2.84 and 3.47) than rest of cropping systems.
