Author(s): Deepali Dash and VP Chimmad
A field experiment was conducted at MARS, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2016-17. The experiment consisted of three dates of sowing (D1, D2, and D3) and five groundnut genotypes (Dh-86, G-2-52, Kadiri-9, TMV-2 and R-2001-2) laid out with factorial RBD design. Among the dates of sowing, D3 temperature regime recorded significantly lower flower count (59.11) with higher pollen sterility per cent (12.73 %) and D1 temperature regime recorded significantly lower pollen sterility (8.241 %).Among genotypes, R-2001-2 recorded significantly higher flower count (100.47) with low pollen sterility per cent (8.573 %) which was on par with G-2- 52 with respect to pollen sterility only.
