Abstract

Quality of peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) seed is of major concern to the grower, processor, and consumer. Past investigations have mainly focused upon organic compounds, thus basic information pertaining to inorganic elements is relatively sparse. A chemical evaluation study was conducted over a three-year period to determine the concentration of elemental constituents among diverse germplasm and to examine the extent of correlation among element concentrations. Twenty-six distinct genotypes were analyzed for N, K, P, S, Mg, Ca, Fe, Zn, Mn, B, and Cu.

Keywords: Arachis hypogaea L, Groundnut, Inorganic constituents, Elemental correlations
