Nigam, S.N., Vasudeva Rao, M. J., and Gibbons, R. W. 1990. Artificial Hybridization in Groundnut. Information Bulletin no. 29. Patancheru, A.P. 502 324, India: International Crops Research  nstitute for the Semi-Arid Tropics. Artificial hybridization is an integra l part of groundnut breeding. In groundnut, the success rate in artificial hybridization depends largely on a proper  nderstanding of the flower structure and its biology, adoption of an appropriate hybridization procedure, adequately trained personnel, and careful environmental control during and after the pollination stage. This bulletin describes the procedures of artificial hybridization in groundnut followed at ICRISAT Center. It also presents suggestions on how to organize a successful  ybridization program in groundnut. This bulletin is intended to be used as a practical guide to plan and carry out artificial hybridization in groundnut, both in the field and in the greenhouse.
