Abstract:

Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is one among the extensively grown oil crop and also it’s an important food legume crop in terms of area, cultivation and utilization. It contributes significantly towards food and nutrition security. This crop also contributes to improving soil fertility via biological nitrogen fixation and organic matter returns to the soil while its haulms and provide valuable supplementary feed for livestock especially during the long dry season. The main focus of the groundnut improvement program was to see the performance of different Spanish-type Groundnut varieties suitable under Central Dry zone of Karnataka In this regard, Experiment was conducted during Kharif 2015-16 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research station, Hiriyur, Chitradurga District. The present investigation consists of 17 entries sponsored by Directorate of Groundnut Research, Junagadh, Gujarat to see the performance of different Spanish-type Groundnut varieties with an objective of exploiting suitable groundnut varieties under Central Dry zone of Karnataka. The results revealed that the data on kernel yield/ ha, pod yield (kg/ha) and haulm yield/ha did not differ significantly among 17 entries of Spanish groundnut except for 100 seed weight. However, the genotype JL 1085 (4674 kg/ha) followed by VG 13127 (4375 kg/ha) gave higher pod yield.
