Modelling genotype-environment interactions for drought-resistance traits in groundnut

Groundnut Drought

UKAID Department for International Development (R4D)

Titre : Modelling genotype-environment interactions for drought-resistance traits in groundnut

Pays : Inde

Projet de recherche pour le Développement : R6173

DFID Programme : Plant Sciences Research

Organismes de mise en œuvre
Lead Institutes : University of Nottingham
Managing Institutes : CAZS Natural Resources, University of Wales, Bangor (CAZS-NR)
Collaborating Institutes : International Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT)

Durée : Start Date : 01-11-1994 End Date : 30-12-1996

Objectif
To identify traits in groundnut associated with genotypic resistance or susceptibility to drought.
To identify genotypic and environmental factors that influence the balance between vegetative and reproductive growth in variable soil moisture environments.
To determine which genotypic traits should be manipulated in order to increase yield or groundnut in targetted NRD core countries.

Résultats

The influence of genotypic factors on groundnut production has been incorporated into the PARCHnut model. Using the data available from previous work, and that derived from current studies, the model has been tested and its performance found to be satisfactory. However, further independent testing is desirable. The model diskette and documentation are intended to make the methods available in a form whi h can be applied by national scientists. Initial feedback from potential users (principally via the training workshop help at ICRISAT) is positive. However, it is too early to judge the final impact of the project
