The present investigations were undertaken to explore the possibilities of developing an effective management strategy for root/stem rot of groundnut. Mycelial growth of this fungus was observed on 30 ?C temperature and pH 6.0. Fungicide folicur 250 EW, neem leaf extract and Trichoderma harzianum were found most effective against the S. rolfsii in vitro however folicur was best under field conditions.These interesting results observed on management aspects could be further explored to find out an integrated disease management package for Sclerotium rot of groundnut.
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) also known as peanut and earthnut, is an important oilseed crop largely grown by resource poor smallholder farmers under rainfed conditions. These farmers employ different tillage practices in the production of the crop. Many farmers perform tillage operations without being aware of the effect of these operations on soil physical properties and crop responses. It is carried out mainly to loosen the upper layer of soil, to mix the soil with fertilizer and organic residues, to control weeds, and to create a suitable seedbed for germination and plant growth. The theme of nutrient management in integrated way for increasing the soil fertility is gaining ground throughout the world in recent years due to high cost of fertilizer and reduced availability of organic manures. Modern tillage and integrated nutrient management practices may affect soil fertility and productivity of groundnut due to different soil conditions created and fulfills the nutrient requirement of crop. The book contains the information on the effect of tillage and integrated nutrient management practices on soil fertility and productivity of groundnut under rainfed conditions.
Groundnut (Peanut),an important energy rich unpredictable legume, since its response to nutrient application is always not optimistic. This crop is cultivated all over the World, mainly for vegetable oil production.It has been found that low yields in groundnut is mainly due to inadequate and imbalanced use of nutrients.High prices of chemical fertilizers as well as environmental hazards along with other detrimental effects of continuous application of inorganic fertilizers at higher doses, led to combination of organic and inorganic nutrient sources which helps to maintain high productivity both in crop and soil.Timing of fertilizers application is also of equal importance to enhance the efficiency of applied fertilizers and organic manures. In this research, efforts have been made to find out judicious combinations of organic and inorganic fertilizers and best management practices for sustainable production of short duration high yielding groundnut, which can be economically feasible too. This book can be quite useful for students, teachers, researchers, farmers and for other people related with groundnut production system.
About 88 per cent of groundnut area in India is sown in the kharif season and is rainfed. Water is the most vital resource in crop production especially in arid and semi arid regions. Rain water conservation is a critical factor in stabilizing and stepping up of rainfed groundnut production. A tillage practice like subsoiling and land configuration like broad bed and furrow improve infiltration of rain water and thus helps to improve moisture storage in soil profile for plants growth than the traditional method of flat bed. Besides, soil conservation practices, sulphur nutrition for oilseed crops in general and for groundnut crop in particular is one of the important pre-requisites for enhancing productivity and quality of groundnut. Sulphur as a plant nutrient is becoming increasingly important in dryland agriculture as it is the master nutrient of all oilseed crops and pulses and is rightly being called the “Forth Major Nutrient”. One of the reasons for low productivity of groundnut in drylands are low soil moisture and fertility, which can be increased by tillage management practices and proper nutrient management particularly sulphur.

Greater one-horned Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) is now found exclusively in Nepal and North Eastern India. Being one of the endangered species of the world, it is necessary to develop the proper strategy for its conservation focussing on various aspects of management. Among them, strategy related to food management is pivotal. This study helps to identify the fodder species most preferred by Rhinoceros during monsoon season along with their nutritional composition ( T.Ash, OM, CP, NDF, ADF, ADl, HC, Cellulose, Calcium, EE and Energy. The result of this study is important for management and conservation of this wonderful but extincting creature of this world as more cautionary action can be taken to flourish the food species having more nutrient content in their habitat.

The maize crop in many underdeveloped countries, particularly in Africa, plays an important role as main source of food and food security, the maize production is constrained for nutrient deficiency. Nutrient depletion and Soil degradation are major problems leading to low soil fertility productivity, hunger, and poverty. Nitrogen is the most deficient nutrient in nearly all soils and Phosphorus is the second limiting nutrient. Thus there is need to identify an affordable management strategy for sustainable maize production which conserves nutrients in the soil, increases yields of maize or other crops and improves soil properties with minimum use inorganic fertilizer. The aim of this work is to search for solutions to the high cost of crop production by partial use of organic sources of nitrogen in conjunction with small doses of inorganic fertilizer.
Groundnut, Arachis hypogaea L., is an important legume plant originated in the Southern Bolivia/North-west Argentina region in South America and is presently cultivated in 108 countries of the world. Production is constrained due to insect pests both in field and storage. More than 350 species of insects infest the crop in different parts of the world. Among the pests, Caryedon serratus (Oliver) is one of the major and important storage insect species causing around 20 per cent damage to groundnut and prevalent in Asia, Greece, France, Italy and the north and west coasts of Africa. The beetle damage not only reduces the weight and nutrient value but also adversely affects the quality of seed and oil. Infestation causes loss in dry mass of the kernels, increased levels of free fatty acids in the oil (thereby lowering the quality) and reduction in germination potential. The heat and moisture generated by large insect population within heaps or stacks of groundnut may also increase the risk of mould growth. Hence the investigations were carried out to study its biology and management on groundnut pods in storage.
