There are two basic types of branching "alternate" and "sequential", and cultivar groups within the two branching patterns are considered as subspecies. In the Virginia group, the main stem does not have reproductive axes. Alternating pairs of vegetative and reproductive axes are borne on the cotyledonary laterals and on other n + 1 branches (where `n' is the main axis, and primary, secondary and tertiary branches are n + 1, n + 2 and n + 3 , respectively). This system was termed the `alternate branching pattern'. The first two branches on the n + 1 laterals are always vegetative and the alternate branching pattern is repeated in the higher order branches. In the Spanish-Valencia group, reproductive branches are borne in a continuous series on ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) SOILS, PLANT GROWTH AND CROP PRODUCTION – Vol.II - Growth and Production of Groundnuts - P.V.
