Abstract

A Virginia runner groundnut Variety GG 41 was developed from the cross GG 21 and TPG 41. This genotype
was tested at multilocation from 2014 to 2018 during kharif season in Gujarat. It recorded a high mean pod yield of 2722 kg/ha as compared to the checks viz., GG 11 (2352 kg/ha) and GJG 17 (2344 kg/ha). Pod yield superiority of this variety over the checks, GG 11 and GJG 17 were 15.74% and 16.10%. Average kernel yield of GG 41 was 2010 kg/ha as against the checks GG 11 (1586 kg/ha) and GJG 17 (1596 kg/ha). Mean 100-kernel weight of GG 41 was 56.48 g; 100-pod weight was 144.98 g; shelling out-turn was 73.84% and the average oil content was 51.44%.
Incidence of stem rot and collar rot of the variety was very low as compared to the check varieties. The damage due to leaf defoliators and thrips under field conditions was lower in GG 41 as compared to the check varieties. Based on the superior performance, this genotype has been released in 15th Combined Joint AGRESCO Committee of SAUs of Gujarat as GG 41 for general cultivation in the kharif rainfed spreading variety groundnut growing areas of the Gujarat State.
