Abstract

In October, 1986, a collecting mission organized jointly by ICRISAT and the Institut d'Economie Rurale, Bamako, in Mali obtained 146 samples representing erect, spreading bunch and runner types belonging to A. hypogaea vars. hypogaea, vulgaris and, possibly, fastigiata. Most of the samples were of old landraces and exhibited wide variation for pod type, seed size and seed colour. Evidence of genetic erosion was detected, particularly among late maturing runner types.
