DROUGHreTsea rch on groundnut conducted at ICRISAT Centre (IC) over the past decade can be grouped into three broad areas: screening and evaluation of genotypes for drought tolerance; strategic research on physiological mechanisms; and some applied research on drought management. Due to limitations of time, I wish to concentrate on progress made in the first two areas, which are relevant to the present workshop. Drought research in groundnut at IC began in 1980, with experiments to examine the timing of irrigation and plant population. Screening of genotypes for drought tolerance began after the 198 1-82 post-rainy season.
