'ALR 2' Spanish peanut (Arachis hypogaea L. subsp. fastigiata Waldron var. vulgaris Hartz) (Reg. no. CV-61, P1 599975) is a pure-line selection from an advanced breeding line, ICGV 86011, developed at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), ICRISAT Asia Center (IAC), Patancheru, AP, India. The original population of ICGV 86011 was supplied to the Agricultural Research Station, Aliyarnagar, Tamil Nadu, India, in 1984. It was tested during the rainy (Chitrai season: April sowing, no irrigation), postrainy (Margazhi season: October sowing, irrigated), and summer (Adi season: June sowing, irrigated) seasons of 1986 to 1993 in various yield trials in Tamil Nadu. After 8 yr of evaluation, ALR 2 was released in 1994 by the state varietal release subcommittee of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, for cultivation in the rainy and irrigated postrainy and summer seasons in the Pollachi tract of Tamil Nadu (3).
