Groundnut variety BARD-699 produced significantly the most promising yield than that of variety BARI-89 at Attock, Fatehjang and NARC, Islamabad. Rhizobium strains, NC-92 was found to be less efficient as compared to TAL-1000; TAL-1371. Nodule dry mass and number of pods per plant were much higher than that of control treatment. Although a significant difference in growth and yield of both the varieties due to Rhizobium inoculation was observed but on average basis TAL-1000 and TAL-1371 gave significantly better response for both the varieties in improving growth and yield at all sites. Nevertheless, future prospects for groundnut production are good in Pakistan if the farmers are realized to practice inoculation technology in their fields.
