Effect of sowing time on groundnut yield in Botswana



Effect of sowing time on groundnut yield in Botswana



Proceedings of the fifth regional groundnut workshop for Southern Africa, 9-12 March 1992 Lilongwe, Malawi: 75-79



In a field experiment in 1989-91 at Sebele Research Station, Botswana, Spanish groundnut 55-437 was sown in mid-Nov. (beginning of the rainy season), mid-Dec., mid-Jan. or mid-Feb. Sowing date did not affect the time of 1st flower appearance, but subsequent flowering was highly dependent on rainfall distribution. Nov. and Dec. sowings produced well-developed plants, while late sown (Jan. and Feb.) crops were stunted and with poorly filled pods.
