Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during Kharif, 2005 at RARS, Tirupati on alfisols with two
groundnut varieties (Vemana and TPT-4) sown at three different times (II FN of June, I FN of July
and II FN of July). Varieties did not exert significant influence on yield and yield attributes of
groundnut. Among the three times of sowing, crop sown during 1st fort night (I FN) of June recorded higher yield and yield attributes over the other two dates of sowing
