Effect of sowing date on groundnuts in sudan gezira



Effect of sowing date on groundnuts in sudan gezira



Experimental Agriculture 14(1): 13-16



A 4 yr investigation of the effects of sowing date on 3 types of groundnut showed that the earlier the sowing date, the later was kernel initiation and kernel maturity. Early sowing resulted in a high pod yield, oil content and I number, but reduced the shelling percentage. The leaf area index ranged 3.0-5.0, the highest value being obtained with early sowing and non-upright bunch varieties.
