Abstract

Sandy soils suffer from many problems with physical and chemical properties as well as low productivity of cultivated crops. Biochar and organic fertilizer have been used in agriculture to improve soil fertility, enhance crop productivity, and sequester carbon in the soil. A study was conducted to investigate the effect of biochar (B) from woody materials and gout manure (GM) on the growth and yield of peanut crops (Arachis hypogaea L.) in sandy soil. The experiment was in a randomized complete block design RCBD with three replicates. The treatments were controlled, 10 t ha-1 GM, 2 % B + 10 t ha-1 GM, and 5 % B + 10 t ha-1 GM. The result showed that the addition of 2 % B + 10 t ha-1 GM increased peanut yield by 50 % while the addition of 5 % B + GM 10 t ha-1 increased peanut yield by 82 %. Without biochar, goat manure had yield increases by 25 % compared to a control. Overall, our findings demonstrate that biochar-goat manure combinations have a better performance than GM alone, in terms of yield and plant growth. For future research, we tend to determine the optimal combination of biochar and goat manure for peanut production.
