Registration of groundnut cultivar ICGV-SM 90704 with resistance to groundnut rosette.
ICGV-SM 90704 is a high-yielding medium-duration groundnut germplasm developed at ICRISAT, Lilongwe, Malawi. It was derived from a cross between varieties RG1 and Mani Pintar, made in 1983. It was released in Uganda in 1999 as Serenut 2 and in Malawi in 2000 as ICGV-SM 90704. ICGV-Sm 90704 is resistant to groundnut rosette virus (GRV) but susceptible to aphid vector (Aphis craccivora) for GRV transmission. The yield performance, plant and seed characters of ICGV-SM 90704 are briefly described.
