Dryland groundnut variety
Can you kindly give the contact details of a farmer in Gujarat who had developed a drought resistant groundnut variety?
You can contact Mr. Dhirajlal Virjibhai Thummar, Via Mota Akadiya, PO Pipal lag, Taluka Pipal lag, Amreli 365455, Gujarat, mobile: 02792-286093, 9825513469. The farmer named the variety as Dhiraj 101.
The crop matures in 95-105 days and bears 35-40 pods per plant. About 90-100 kg of seeds are required for an hectare and yield 3,200-3,500 kgs from an hectare. Mr. Thummar used only herbal pesticide for controlling insect pests and diseases in the crop.
