Field screening was carried out to identify sources of resistance to three groundnut pests. A total of 1,000 genotypes of groundnut were screened for resistance to the jassid (Empoasca kerri Pruthi), 2,700 for resistance to the thrips (Frankliniella schultzei (Trybom)), and 530 for resistance to pod scarifying termites (Odontotermes sp.). Genotypes with multiple resistance to these pests were identified from the 3 years field screening trials and some of them have been used in the breeding program at ICRISAT.
