SUMMARY Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea) is one of the most promising food legumes in Africa, due to its agronomic and nutritional potential. To take advantage of these attributes, several research programmes gathering agronomic and genetic data are being implemented throughout Africa. In this context, the response of yield and yield components to sowing density and seedbed type were tested in a three-year (2005, 2006 and 2007) field experiment using a bambara groundnut landrace with a… Expand
Effects of Plant Density and Planting Pattern on Growth and Seed Yield of Groundnuts [Arachis hypogaea (l.)] in the Wet Middleveld of Eswatini
TLDR
It is concluded that groundnuts at raised beds with low plant density yielded higher than those at ridges with high plant density, and it is recommended that groundnut be planted atraised beds withLow plant density to increase groundnut production and for ease of harvesting. Expand
Genetic analysis of plant morphology in bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.)
TLDR
The QTL-DNA marker associations developed in this study could be used practically for MAS in a future breeding program of this crop and suggest pleiotropic effects of a more limited number of gene(s). Expand

Genetic evaluation of seed traits from intraspecific crossing of genetically distinct watermelon varieties
TLDR
Evaluating seed variability in different segregating populations, and determining heritability of traits of watermelon revealed that Bebu and WSS cultivars were genetically distinct and showed three main groups: two groups from each parental line and one from a recombinant line (hybrids). Expand
The effect of temperature and drought stress on Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc) landraces
Five experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of drought and high temperature stress on the growth and development of bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc). Three glasshouseExpand
BAMBARA NUT: A REVIEW OF UTILISATION, MARKET POTENTIAL AND CROP IMPROVEMENT
Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) originated in West Africa but has become widely distributed throughout the semi-arid zone of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Sharing a high nutritive valueExpand
INTENSIFICATION CAPACITY DEFENSIVE OF LAGENARIA SICERARIA (MOLINA) STANDLEY (CUCURBITACEAE) SENSITIVE ACCESSIONS TO INSECT PESTS BY THE PROVISION OF ORGANIC FERTILIZER
TLDR
The results showed that it is possible to improve the productivity of NI227 through the use of organic manure and that NI431 accession would be tolerant of insect pest and that this tolerance is related to genetic and non-nutritional factors of the soil. Expand
Bambara Groundnut is a Climate-Resilient Crop: How Could a Drought-Tolerant and Nutritious Legume Improve Community Resilience in the Face of Climate Change?
Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.; www.bamyield.org) is a crop similar in morphology and growth habit to groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). It was also historically largely displaced byExpand
Genetic variability of Indonesian landraces of Vigna subterranea: Morphological characteristics and molecular analysis using SSR markers
TLDR
The result based on SSR marker with capillary electrophoresis indicated Black Gresik and Black Madura landraces were different from other Indonesian landrace and have the farthest distances for developing improved variety of bambara groundnut. Expand
Influence of herbivorous insects on the production of Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standley (Cucurbitaceae)
TLDR
It was revealed that nine insect species belonging to four families and three orders were responsible for foliar damage and agronomic parameters of Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) Standley (Cucurbitaceae). Expand

INFLUENCE OF SOWING DATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND YIELD OF BAMBARA GROUNDNUT (VIGNA SUBTERRANEA) LANDRACES IN A SUB-TROPICAL REGION
TLDR
Sowing date influenced yields of bambara groundnut through the effect of temperature and daylength on plant development, and for the landraces used in the study, while the rate of progress from sowing to flowering was influenced by temperature, the rateof progress from flowering to podding was influenced largely by daylength. Expand
Yield response of Bambara groundnut to plant population and seedbed type
TLDR
A field experiment to study the effect of plant population and seedbed type on yields of bambara groundnuts was conducted at Morogoro in Tanzania and found leaf area index (LAI) was highest for 66 plants m-2 and/or when planted on the ridge. Expand
Growth and development of bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea) in response to soil moisture: 1. Dry matter and yield
TLDR
The mean pod yield across the droughted treatments that had received no water for almost 100 days indicated the resilience of the species to drought. Expand
Constitutive traits and selective indices of Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L) Verdc) landraces for drought tolerance under Botswana conditions
TLDR
The results of this experiment indicate that, canopy spread, root:shoot ratio, 100-seed weight and number of seeds per pod are among parameters that could be used for indirect selection for drought tolerance in Bambara groundnut in Botswana and other areas where drought is a common occurrence.

TLDR
Differences in dry matter production between sowings and years were attributed mainly to differences in the amount and distribution of rainfall and to declining temperatures towards the end of the season; however, partitioning to pods was remarkably consistent across sowings. Expand
