In previous experiments it has found out that radio-sensibility of groundnuts is more emphasized in Tamburesti variety comparative with other varieties and lines. Because it passed two years of repeated irradiation, I think the obtained results until now are due to the so called "storage effect". I established that the X rays doses between 5000R and 10000R determined in some variants inhibition of growth process in roots and also a high frequency of the chromosomal aberrations in the anaphase and telophase of root meristems. The data revealed that not only the "storage effect" of the irradiated seeds contributed to the high frequency of the chromosomal aberrations in this investigation, but also the repeated irradiation and the fact that Tamburesti variety has a raised specific radio-sensibility, probably determined by its physiological and biochemical peculiarities and by the fact that it was created through chemical mutagenesis (in 1983).
