Field trial was carried out during kharif 2017 at Oilseeds Research station Tindivanam to evaluate the performance of soaked single pods sowing in comparison with farmers practice (kernel sowing) on the growth and yield of groundnut variety (TMV 13). The experiment was carried out with 7 treatments viz., sowing of non soaked (dry) and soaked single pods in water with different soaking time (4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 hrs) compared with kernel sowing replicated thrice in a randomized block design. The results showed that there was a clear difference in the treatments of water soaked single pods as compared to dry sowing of single pod and kernel sowing on field emergence, days to 50% of flowering, plant height and root length. The no. of pods/plant and pod yield also higher in kernel sowing and water soaked single pods and significantly differ with the single pods without soaking in water.
