Abstract:

The groundnut variety, Konkan Bhurtana (RTNG 29) was evolved from the cross between PBS 24030 and GPBD 4 using former parent through hybridization followed by pedigree method of selection. Konkan Bhuratna variety is medium duration (115-120 days), Virginia Bunch type groundnut culture having 2.5 to 3.0 t/ha average pod yield, with 50.01 % oil content, 23.44% protein content and 74 % shelling percentage, it is medium bold kernel type variety, suitable for both kharif and rabi season. It is resistant to early and late leaf spot, rust, PBND, alterneria leaf blight diseases and also resistant to thrips, jassids, leaf miner, defoliator insect and pests. Therefore the groundnut variety Konkan Bhuratna recommended for release for commercial cultivation in upland area during Kharif and irrigated area during Rabi season in Konkan region of the Maharashtra state during the year 2017.


Keywords: Konkan Bhuratna, High yield, High oil percent, Resistance to diseases and pest.
