Groundnut is a major cash crop in the semi-arid tropics, where it is grown mainly under rainfed conditions. As rainfed condition is characterized by low, irratic and unassured rainfall, creates drought condition at any stage of the crop growth. The occurrence of drought is considered as a major factor for limiting the yield of groundnut in semi-arid tropicsl. Maximum pod yield was reported in DVR 50 and CGC 4018 under stress condition among spreading and bunch groups, respectivelr. Response 'of different genotypes to different drought patterns helps in selection of better genotypes for drought tolerance. Therefore an attempt was made to study the drought tolerance ability of twenty genotypes of groundnut under mid season and end season drought conditions......
