Abstract:
Objective of this study was to investigate whether physiological traits related to drought tolerance can correctly identify the peanut genotypes with high yield under water-limited conditions. Seven released cultivars and two drought tolerant lines were arranged in a split plot design with four replications for two years. The two water regimes (field capacity; FC and 2/3 available water; 2/3 AW.) were assigned in main plots and peanut genotypes were assigned in subplots. The data were recorded for SPAD Chlorophyll Meter Reading (SCMR), Specific Leaf Weight (SLW), biomass, pod yield, harvest index (HI), number of mature pods, shelling percentage, 100-seed weight and number of seeds per pod. SLW and SCMR could effectively identify peanut cultivars with higher pod yield under water-limited conditions. KK 60-3, KKU 72-1 and KKU 60 were identified as drought tolerant because they had SCMR and SLW, which were similar to those of ICGV 98324 and ICGV 98308. KK 60-3 had high biomass under water limited conditions because of high potential but it had poor pod yield, whereas KKU 60 had the highest pod yield and HI. KKU 60 also had the highest pod yield under well-watered conditions. The results indicated that some released cultivars had degree of drought tolerance similar to or better than that of the drought tolerant lines. The improvement of peanut cultivars for drought tolerance can be site-specific.
