Groundnuts cv. Early Bunch, Florunner and NC-FLA 14 were grown in 2 replicate experimental plots in Tifton, Georgia during 1978. Urea was applied to the leaves at 0, 10, 20 and 40 lb N/ac. Urea increased the total yield of all 3 cv. but the higher rates of application had a negative effect on yield. Methionine conc. increased slightly at 10 lb/ac only. No differences were noted in oil content, protein and characteristic protein profile of the seeds as determined by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
