Groundnut JL-24 was sown in a field in Assam, India, on 4 dates (15 September, 1 October, 15 October and 1 November) during the rabi seasons of 1996-97 and 1997-98. Mulching with either paddy straw or paddy husk was also compared with no mulching. The mulching treatments resulted in a higher number of mature pods per plant, kernel weight per plant, dry pod weight per plant and pod yield in both years, compared to the no mulch treatment.
