A field experiment was conducted at Berhampur during rainy (kharif) season of 2003 and 2004 on loamy sand soil to study the effect of integrated use of FYM, recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF) i.e. 20-17.4-33.3 kg N-P-K/ha, Rhizobium, gypsum (250 kg/ha) and boron (1 kg/ha) on performance of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) and soil fertility. Results revealed that application of FYM+75% RDF+Rhizobium+gypsum+boron recorded significantly higher pods/plant, 100 pod weight resulting in higher pod (2.66 tonne/ha), kernel yield (1.92 tonne/ha) and nutrient uptake (151.4-17.0-58.6-0.8-0.07 kg N-P-K-S-B/ha). This treatment also had generated maximum net return (Rs. 22,000/ha). The increase in pod yield of this treatment was 65 and 14% higher over RDF and application of 5 t FYM+75% RDF+Rhizobium+lime @1/4 lime requirement (LR)+boron respectively. Application of FYM+75% RDF+gypsum was the second best pod yielding treatment. However, the calcium uptake was highest (48.6 kg/ha) with FYM+75% RDF+Rhizobium+Lime @ 1/4 LR+boron application. There was build up of available N in the soil but P,K,S and B were depleted after cropping. Available Ca had depleted in all the treatments except the treatments using lime and combination of FYM and gypsum
