The experiment was conducted at the charland area of Jamalpur during rabi 2017-18 and 2018-19 to find out the suitable growth regulator for groundnut in char land. Treatments included in the experiment were: Flora (Nitrobenzene, ACI), Nafa (Entefa), Maxsulphar (Sulfer-80%, Mcdonald), Alba (Avamectin-1.8 EC, SAMP Limited), Calsol and Control (without growth regulator). Growth regulator were applied Flora (2 ml/L), Nafa (2.5 ml/L), Maxsulphar (2 ml/L), Alba (0.5 ml/L), Calsol (3 ml/L) as foliar spray at 35 and 45 days after sowing (DAS). Several yield parameters e.g. plant height, number of pod/plant, number of effective pod/plant, number of uneffective pod/plant, root length, 100 seed wt. and yield were analyzed. Growth regulators effective to groundnut in charland area from Flora, Nafa, Maxsulphar and Alba application due to formation of nodulation, chlorophyll synthesis and supply of plant growth agent. Control treatment performs better than some growth regulator treatments.
