Abstract

There is high a level of fluctuation in the productivity of groundnut
depending on the rainfall as 70 per cent of the area is under semi-arid tropics
characterized by low and erratic rainfall. Not only the yield but also other
yield attributes, growth and development are affected by soil moisture deficit
or water stress. Hence, maintenance of optimum soil moisture at critical
growth stages is the key factor for achieving higher yields. The knowledge
on physiological characters like photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, leaf
water potential and water use efficiencies would certainly be helpful in making
irrigation scheduling of groundnut and decision support systems that aim at
higher productivity.
