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… 

Effects of Plant Density and Planting Pattern on Growth and Seed Yield of Groundnuts [Arachis hypogaea (l.)] in the Wet Middleveld of Eswatini

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.

Genetic analysis of plant morphology in bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.)

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).

Hereditary analysis and genotype × environment interaction effects on growth and yield components of Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdc.) over multi-environments

This investigation was carried out to explore G × E interaction for yield and its associated attributes in 30 Bambara groundnut genotypes across four environments in tropical Malaysia. Such

Agromorphological and Phenological Variability of 10 Bambara Groundnut [ Vigna subterranea ( L . ) Verdc . ( Fabaceae ) ] landraces cultivated in the Ivory Coast

The objective of this study was to investigate the agro-morphological and phenological characteristics of ten Bambara groundnut landraces that originated in the Ivory Coast. The study was conducted

AMMI and GGE biplot analysis for yield performance and stability assessment of selected Bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea L. Verdc.) genotypes under the multi-environmental trials (METs)

According to the results, breeding could improve yield production, and the genotypes discovered could be recommended for commercial cultivation.

Genetic evaluation of seed traits from intraspecific crossing of genetically distinct watermelon varieties

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).

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 glasshouse

Effect of Sowing Dates on the Productivity of Oilseed Citrullus Lanatus

Finding a sustainable solution to the problem of climate change is the first step to reduce food insecurity and malnutrition in developing countries. In Côte d’Ivoire the oilseed Citrullus lanatus

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 value

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 by

INFLUENCE OF SOWING DATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND YIELD OF BAMBARA GROUNDNUT (VIGNA SUBTERRANEA) LANDRACES IN A SUB-TROPICAL REGION

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.

Yield response of Bambara groundnut to plant population and seedbed type

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.

Effect Of Seed Size and Plant Spacing on Yield and Yield Components of Faba Bean ( Vicia faba L . )

A field experiment was conducted in season (2001/2002) in the Demonstration Farm of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum, at Shambat. The objectives of the study were to investigate the

Effect of plant density and urea foliar application on yield and yield components of chickpea (Cicer arietinum)

Two field experiments were conducted during winter o f 2 004/2005 and 2005/2006 seasons in private f arm at Al Nagah village, S outh A l Tahrir province, Al Beheira G overnorate, Egypt to study the

Characterization and evaluation of accessions of Bambara groundnut ( Vigna subterranea (L.) Verdcourt) from Burkina Faso

Three hundred and ten (310) Bambara groundnut accessions mainly from the Northern semi arid zone of Burkina Faso were assessed for phenotypic variability of agronomic and morphological traits.

Response of Lentil (Lens culinaris Medik) to Plant Density, Sowing Date, Phosphorus Fertilization and Ethephon Application in the Absence of Moisture Stress

High yields were obtained for early sowing, high plant density, and high phosphorus application rate, and yield and yield components were not affected by ethephon application 30 days after sowing.

INFLUENCE OF SOWING DATE ON THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF BAMBARA GROUNDNUT LANDRACES IN TANZANIA

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.
