L. subsp. fastigiata Waldron) (Reg. no. CV-49, PI 562530), was released in 1991 by the Central Sub-committee on Crop Standards, Notification, and Release of Varieties, Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, for rainy-season cultivation in peninsular India, where rust (Puccinia arachidis Speg.) and late leafspot [Phaeoisariopsis personata (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Arx] are serious problems. In 25 tests conducted by the All India Coordinated Research Project on Oilseeds (AICORPO) during 1988 to 1990 in India, ICGV 86590 produced an average of 22% higher pod yield than JL 24, the most popular cultivar in peninsular India (1). In the same trials, it also outyielded local cultivars CO 2 by 30%, TMV 2 by 89%, KRG 1 by 38%, and TG 3 by 51%. ICGV 86590 was bred at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT). The cultivar was derived from a cross between a Spanish breeding line (X 14-4-B-19-B), and a rust- and late leafspot-resistant Valencia germplasm line (PI 259747) (2), by bulking resistant plants in six successive generations grown in rainy-season disease nurseries by following a mass pedigree method. These nurseries included spreader rows and had naturally occurring rust and late leafspot to near-epidemic proportions. The pedigree of ICGV 86590 is (X 14-4-B-19-B x PI 259747)F2-B2- B1-B1-Bj-B1-B2-
