Abstract

Sixty six genotypes of groundnut were screened under drought stress conditions. Yield, yield attributes and
aflatoxin content were estimated at harvest. Reduction in yield and yield attributing traits, except for number of primary branches and amount of aflatoxin contamination under drought stress as compared to normal moisture condition, was observed.
