In field experiments on sandy clay loam soils in Andhra Pradesh during two winter seasons, the effects of irrigation (25, 50 or 75% depletion of available soil moisture (DASM)), plant density (4.44 x 105, 6.66 x105 or 10.00 x 105 plants/ha) and NPK fertilizer schedule (30-20-50, 60-40-100 or 90-60-150) on the yield and nutrient uptake of groundnut were investigated. Pod yield was unaffected by plant density and fertiliser schedule when the crop was sown at the optimal time during 1980.
