Abstract:

The objective of research was to evaluate the effect of different sowing dates on the development of root rot complex disease on the two cultivars of groundnut namely SG-99 and M-522. Effect of sowing date on the disease development was studied at three locations with seven sowing dates and three replications. The crop was sown at 15th March, 30th March, 15th April, 30th April, 15th May, 30th May and 15th July. The highest number of yield contributing characters and pod yield was recorded in early sown crop (15th and 30th March sown crop) because of less disease development. Due to unfavourable weather for disease development, early sown crop escaped from disease attack. Among the total seven sowing dates, 15th March was most suitable for SG-99 and 30th March for M-522. The early sowing of virginia type groundnut (M-522) was more sensitive to the temperature compared to spanish type (SG-99). Low temperature during germination adversely effected the germination of virginia type groundnut variety (M-522).
