A field experiment was conducted during kharif 1999, 2000 and 2001, in Junagadh, Gujarat, India, to study the effects of organic manures on the yield attributes of rainfed groundnut as well as on the soil nutrient status. Application of farmyard manure (FYM) at 10 t/ha recorded significantly higher pod yield (2785 kg/ha) and gross return (Rs. 314 471/ha) with the maximum net return of (Rs. 17 597/ha), followed by the application of the recommended dose of fertilizer. FYM at 10 t/ha every year on a same site significantly increased the available N, P2O5 and K2O in the soil
