.Origin and Development

CGV-SM 83708 (also known as ICGMS 42) originated from a single plant selection made in the F2 generation of a cross between USA 20 and TMV 10 in 1977/78 at ICRISAT Asia Center, Patancheru, India. The plant was progeny-rowed in the next generation and the selected phenotypically similar plants were bulked at harvest. This bulk was advanced to subsequent generations by bulking the phenotypically similar plants at harvest until the bulk was stabilized. The pedigree of ICGV-SM 83708 is (USA 20 x TMV 10) F2-P3-B1-B1-B1-B1-B1- B1-B1-B1. ICGV-SM 83708 was introduced in the Southern African Development Community (SADC)/ICRISAT Groundnut Project, Malawi, in 1982 as an advanced breeding line. After  initial evaluation in the 1982/83 season in Malawi, it was included in the regional groundnut varietal trial of the SADC region in 1983/84 as ICGMS 42. Subsequently, it was designated ICRISAT-SM 83708. After extensive evaluation in regional, national, and on-farm trials, it was released in Zambia and Malawi.
