Abstract

The work carried out over the past 50 years on the groundnut proteins reveals little information about the influence of genetic factors on their amino acid composition (Rosen, 1958). Bolhuis (1963) suggested that the N content of various food crops, Including groundnut, is influenced to a considerable extent by genetic constitution. Busson, Carbiener, Georgin, Lanza & Dubois (1960), however, observed that the N content of groundnut was influenced more by ecological than by genetic factors; the amino acid composition was not altered by either of these factors. The investigation now described was therefore undertaken to study more fully the genetic differences in the composition of groundnut protein as revealed by the contents of essential and non- essential amino acids when different varieties were grown under identical conditions of culture, soil and climate.
