In a field trial in 1979 groundnut cv. Early Bunch, NC-Fla 14 and Florunner were given 0, 3, 6 or 9 kg N/ha as foliar or soil applications 85 and 116 days after sowing. Seed yield was not significantly affected by method of application or by the amount of N applied. Av. yields of the cv. were 3.16, 2.74 and 3.22 t/ha, resp. The effect of N application on seed oil, protein, carbohydrate and amino acid contents was variable.
