Groundnut is the major summer season oil seed crop in Nepal. There are high demand of early groundnut as early groundnut helps succeeding crops like mustard and wheat preventing them from post anthesis hot winds. Coordinated varietal trial was conducted for four years in three different location. With an objective to identify the high yielding early growing genotypes, ORP, Nawalpur has been continuously doing Coordinated varietal trial in 3 different location ( Sarlahi, Surkhet and Nepalgunj) for 4 years in RCBD design with 9 genotypes. Two genotypes ICGV 9358 (2121 kg/ha) and ICGV 05155 (1901 kg/ha) showed highest yield as compared to check varieties i.e. Jayanti (1861 kg/ha) and Baidehi (18144 kg/ha). While seeing the overall observation, ICGV 95358 has highest Pods per plant (40.2), Hundred Seed Weights (44.6) and Shelling Percentage (72.1), and yield (2121) and low maturity day (25.1 DAS). Similarly, other elite genotypes found through this research were ICGV 07214 and ICGV 05155. These identified early elite genotypes of Groundnut can be further evaluated for Coordinated farmerís Field trial and in near future can be released as high yielding early genotypes of Groundnut.
