Optimum time for flower removal to avoid selfing in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

Optimum time for flower removal to avoid selfing in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.)

Legume Research 25(2): 145-146

A pot experiment was conducted during the rainy season of 1999 in Junagadh, Gujarat, India, to determine the time of the day when the flowers which are not used for pollination (during artificial hybridization programme) have to be removed to minimize the chances of forming selfed pods. The removal of flower from the base was more effective than the removal from the top in minimizing the selfed pegs per plant.
