Gamma sensitivity of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) Genotype: Toward the Improvement
Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is a member of family Fabaceae. It is an important monoecious annual legume in world mainly grown for oilseed, food and animal feed. Groundnut oil contains 51% of mono-saturated oil and 30% polyunsaturated and 19% saturated oil. India consumes over 10 million tons of edible oil per year. Present study was conducted to check the gamma sensitivity of groundnut and to find out suitable dose of rays. For the purpose germination %, seedling height & root length was observed after the different doses of gamma rays i.e. 10kr, 15kr, 20kr and 25kr on two varieties of groundnut viz. TAG-24 and AK-159 and it was concluded that 10 kr dose induces good genetic variability in both varieties.
