Crop growth, water-use efficiency and carbon isotope discrimination in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) genotypes under end-of-season drought conditions



Crop growth, water-use efficiency and carbon isotope discrimination in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) genotypes under end-of-season drought conditions



Annals of Applied Biology 122(2): 357-367



Ten groundnut genotypes were grown with adequate irrigation, or were subjected to drought during pod filling (83-113 d after sowing) in an experiment on a medium deep Alfisol at ICRISAT Centre, Andhra Pradesh, during the 1986/87 post-rainy season. Shoot DM accumulation during the drought period was 72-150 g/msuperscript 2 and was closely related to transpiration.
