Effect of flower and gynophore removal on the biomass partitioning in various vegetative and reproductive parts in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

, : Effect of flower and gynophore removal on the biomass partitioning in various vegetative and reproductive parts in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). Indian Journal of Plant Physiology 35(2): 125-129

Groundnuts M13 grown at Ludhiana had their flowers removed in the early (0-4 weeks), middle (5-9 weeks) or late (9 weeks to maturity) reproductive growth stages, or in combinations of 2 of these phases. Vegetative growth was increased by flower removal. Pod number was increased by removing early phase flowers and decreased by removing middle phase flowers, or middle + late flowers.
