Abstract:

Fifty groundnut genotypes were evaluated in kharif 2014 under rainfed conditions. Data was collected on sixteen yield and drought related traits to assess the phenotypic diversity and to investigate the relationship between pod yield and other drought tolerance related traits in groundnut. Coefficient of variation ranged from 0.72 to 13.33. Clustering based on groundnut genotypes separated the measured traits into three main groups and based on traits it separated groundnut genotypes into five major groups. Number of pods per plant, dry matter per plant, SLA at 80 DAS, number of sound mature kernels per plant, kernel yield per plant and SLA at 60 DAS were the most related traits with pod yield per plant. The genotypes MLTG(SB)-3, MLTG(SB)-6, MLTG(VB)-11 and MLTG(VB)-2 could be utilized for improving pod yield per plant and its component traits.
