Purpose of Description
ICGV 87160, also known as ICG(FDRS) 10, was released in 1990 by the Central Sub- Committee on Crop Standards, Notification, and Release of Varieties, Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, for rainyseason cultivation in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and parts of Maharashtra in India, where rust and late leaf spot diseases cause serious problems to groundnut production. nIt also showed pod-yield superiority over local cultivars in Bangladesh (69% over Dacca 1), Myanmar (20% over Japanese Small), Sri Lanka (100% over Local), Thailand (19% over Tainan 9), the Philippines (67% over BPI Pn 9), and Niger (17% over 28-206).
Origin and Development
ICGV 87160 was bred and developed at ICRISAT Center, Patancheru, India. It was derived by the bulk pedigree method from a cross of a Spanish variety, Ah 65, and a rust-resistant Valencia germplasm line, NC Ac 17090. Its pedigree is (Ah 65 x NC Ac 17090) F2-B1-B1- B2-B1-B1-B1-B2. It was advanced in the rainy seasons in disease nurseries that incorporate infector rows, where rust and late leaf spot occur naturally to near epidemic proportions. Itis adapted to low-input rainfed cultivation.Agrotags:
