When the seeds of F2 lines from 3 genetically broad-based crosses 'Robut 33-1' x 'Chico', 'Chico' x 'Robut 33-1', 'Robut 33-1' x 'MH 2' in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea Linn.) were irradiated with 30 kR, the performance of some F2 lines for pod yield, shelling percentage and 100-kernel weight improved from medium to high in the F2 generation showing the beneficial effects of irradiation which could have promoted desirable recombination. The levels of improvement obtained in the lines indicated the existence of reciprocal differences also.
