Abstract

Development of genotypes suitable for confectionery purposes is one of the important breeding objectives in groundnut. Various physical and chemical traits apart from nutritional factors of the groundnut seed determine the confectionery quality and identification of appropriate donors is a pre-requisite. Seventeen confectionery type groundnut selections developed at ICRISAT were evaluated for two years to identify superior genotypes with better performance to different traits at Junagadh conditions for the next cycle of crossing programme. Genotypes ICGV 90212 and ICGV 97051 were found promising for kernel yield. For improvement of seed size ICGV 91089, ICGV 90210 and ICGV 91099 can act as donor parents, while ICGV 89214 can contribute to seed size improvement coupled with higher yield
