Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is an important oilseed crop contributing large share of vegetable oil. The crop is known to suffer from several diseases. Among them, rust caused by Puccinia arachidis Speg.  assumes greater significance as this disease is found to occur regularly in Gujarat during kharif season. The bio molecules such as total soluble sugars, protein and total phenol content were increased due to rust infection in the resistant entries PI-476177 and PI-476168. The rate of accumulation of biomolecules such as total soluble sugars, protein and total phenol contents observed higher in susceptible entries PI-476165 and J-11, as compared to resistant entries. The amino acids content were decreased in both resistant and susceptible entries due to rust infection. The micronutrient content copper and zinc was found higher in resistant entries while iron and manganese content was found higher in the susceptible entries. The micronutrient content was increased in the fungicide treated groundnut plants  compared to the untreated plants.

Keywords: Groundnut,rust, fungicides, micronutrient content, TSS, protein,phenol,Amino acids.
