Two experiments were conducted, one in the field and one in a growth chamber to determine the range of translocation of 14C labeled photosynthate among peanut genotypes. Single attached leaves of peanut genotypes, which differed in photosynthetic rates, were exposed to 14CO2 in the field and in a growth chamber. A significant difference in translocation was found among the genotypes in the growth chamber experiment with a range of 22 to 45 of assimilated 14C translocation from the exposed leaf in 6 hours. The average translocation percentage of two cultivated genotypes (
