Inheritance of period from seedling emergence to first flowering in peanut (Arachis Hypogaeal) uri icon


  • F 1 progenies peanut (Arachis hypogaeal. L.) from a 6 x diallel, including reciprocals and their parents, were evaluated for the number of days seedlings emergence to first flower appearance during the 1981 and 1982 rainy seasons at ICRISAT Centre, Patancheru, India. Genetic analysis indicated the predominant role of additivegenetic variance in the expression of this character. Genotype 91176 had the best general combining ability for early flowering and has the potential for use in breedingprograms.Variety M 13 had the best general combining ability for late flowering
