Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the yield performance of peanut applied with different rates of Complete Fertilizer (14-14-14). The experiment was done under the soil and climatic condition in Zamboanga Sibugay. The experiment was laid using Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four treatments and four replications. An area of 168 square meters was divided into 16 plots each measured 1.5 meters wide and 7 meters long excluding canals. There was only one factor used in the study, the different rates of Complete Fertilizer (14-14-14). The four treatments were T1 – 1.64 grams per hill, T2 – 2.46 grams per hill, T3 – 3.28 grams per hill and T4 - control. NSIC Pn 2 (Biyaya 12) was the variety used in this research. Two seeds per hill were planted with the distance of 20 cm between hills and 90 cm between rows. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) showed the average number of pods per plant per plot per treatment; average number of seeds per pod per plot per treatment; total number of pods per plot per treatment and total weight of pods in kilogram per plot per treatment revealed that the Computed “f” was lesser than the tabulated “f” at both 5% (3.49) and 1% (5.95) levels of significance. In addition, ANOVA on the average number of pods per kilogram per plot per treatment revealed that the Computed “f” (5.19) was greater than the Tabulated “f” (3.49) at 5% level of significance.  The result unveiled a significant difference.Keywords: Complete Fertilizer, Peanut, Yield Performance
