Light, dark and growth regulator involvement in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) pod development

Gynophore elongation and pod formation were studied in peanut plants (Arachis hypogaea L.) under light and dark conditions in vivo. The gynophores elongated until pod formation was initiated. Pod (3–20 mm length) development could be totally controlled by alternating dark (switched on) and light (switched off) conditions, repeatedly. Gynophore elongation responded conversely to light/dark conditions, compared to pods. In this study we aimed to correlate the light/dark effects with endogenous… CONTINUE READING
