Abstract:

Nineteen groundnut genotypes were screened for physiological characters, chlorophyll content and nitrate reductase activity at 30 DAS (pre-anthesis) and 60 DAS (post-anthesis) along with kernel yield during the Pre-summer. Leaf chlorophyll content and nitrate reductase activity plays a considerable role in plant metabolism. Nitrate reductase is one of the most important enzymes in the assimilation of exogenous nitrate, the predominant form of nitrogen available to green plants growing in soil, helps in maintaining the plant photosynthetic machinery, which in turn results in accumulation of metabolites for storage i.e., kernel yield. High significant differences were observed in genotypes for chlorophyll content and nitrate reductase activity in relation to kernel yield.
