Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during Rabi season 2016-17 at Research Farm of Deprtment of Botany, Dapoli to know the effect of different stress mitigating compounds on morpho-physiological characters, yield and yield components in groundnut under water stress. Experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications that control (T1) recorded significantly total chlorophyll content and Chlorophyll stability index over all other treatments, Whereas, stressed plot (T2) recorded lower values for these parameters as compared to other stress mitigating treatments. Proline content at different stages indicated that control had significantly lower proline content as compared all other treatments whereas stressed plot (T2) had the maximum proline content. Membrane stability index at different growth stages indicated that control had significantly higher MSI as compared to other treatments. The data indicated that there were significant diffrences between different stress mitigating treatments with respect to oil and protein content. From the result indicated that the oil and protein content was higher in control as compared to other treatments. While, stressed plot significantly lower oil and protein content as compared to other treatments.
