Peanut is widely grown in the rainy season on upland soils (mostly Paleustults) in northeast Thailand. The nutrient status of these soils for peanut production has not been adequately assessed. Response to phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, and copper on a range of soil types of this region have been obtained in pot trials using pasture legumes (Wilaipon 1976). The present experiments were set up to identify nutrient deficiencies which could limit yield and kernel quality of peanut on an Oxic Paleustult (Khorat series).
