A simple and rapid method is described whereby the oil from distal end of a
kernel excluding embryo was analyzed for the fatty acid composition. Preparation
and analysis of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) requires 30 and 10 minutes respectively.
The method developed was evaluated for the precision using seven genotypes of
groundnut. This procedure maintains greater integrity of the seed for planting purposes,
requires less time and cost for fatty acids analysis and can improve efficiency of
individual seed analysis, thereby assisting in more rapid screening that helps in
development of new varieties and pollution free environment due to lesser number
of chemicals requirement
