Combined effect of phosphorus and molybdenum on above-ground growth parameters of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

Israel Sesugh Myina


A controlled experiment was conducted on a randomized block design in three blocks with three levels of phosphorus (P) and molybdenum (Mo). P and Mo were applied in nine combinations, sixty days after planting, the flower counts, plant heights, fresh and dry weights were obtained. It was observed that the application of P and Mo in combination significantly influenced the flower count and fresh vegetative weight. However, only P application had a maximum positive effect on dry vegetative weight and there was no significant effect on plant height.
