The SADCC/ ICRISAT Regional Groundnut Improvement Program for Southern Africa gives high priority to breeding agronomically acceptable, groundnut rosette virus (GRV) resistant groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) cultivars adapted to the region. The major emphasis is on short-duration types for the areas where rosette virus is most important, but there is also a need to breed bold-seeded, GRVresistant cultivars for the confectionary trade. A breeding program was initiated in 1982, and material is now in the F4 stage. In this paper, we report on studies on the inheritance of the resistance. Studies...........
