Abstract:

The groundnut, an important protein crops in India grown under rain-fed conditions. It is one of the world's principal oilseed crops, widely grown in areas ranging from latitude 40°N to 40°S. Nuts are eaten in a variety of forms, or crushed to provide vegetable oil for human consumption and protein rich meal for livestock’s. However, there has been a consistent fluctuation in the area and production over years and across the states. The main focus of the groundnut improvement program was to see the performance of different Virginia-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 11 entries sponsored by Directorate of Groundnut Research, Junagadh, Gujarat to see the performance of different Virginia-type groundnut varieties with an objective of exploiting suitable groundnut varieties under Central Dry zone of Karnataka. This investigation revealed that traits like 100 seed weight and haulm yield/ha recorded significant difference among different entries, further the entry NRCG CS 414 recorded the higher pod yields of 2891 kg/ha.
