Abstract: The experiment was conducted during Kharif season in the Block B-12 at college farm, Department of Agronomy Vasantrao Naik Marathawada Agricultura University, Parbhani, to study the “Assessment of Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L) Genotypes for plant Geometry during Kharif season. The experiment was laid out in factorial RBD with the replications. Total nine treatment combinations consisted of three genotypes (TAG-24, TAG-26, TAG-19) and three plant geometry (30cmx10cm, 30cm x 15cm and 22.5cm x 10cm). All three varieties are released from Trombay. So the name is given Trombay Groundnut (TG) with the help of radiation at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. The genotypes were tolerant to bud necrosis and jassids. Among more promising to produce higher biomass and pod yield compare to TAG-24 and TG-26 for the cultivation during kharif season exposed to various biotic and abiotic stress. The spacing of 30cm x 10 cm was found optimum to produce higher pod yield compared to wider spacing 30cmx 15cmas well as closer spacing 22.5cm x10cm. The oil content was higher in TG-26 i.e. (45.61) over TAG-24 and TG-19. Similarly TAG-24 (44.50) was significantly superior over TG-19(43.39) in producing oil.
