Field experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Kadiri, ANGRAUto study the influence of sowing windows on growth and yield of groundnut genotypes under rainfed conditions during Kharif season of 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 on sandy loam soil. Four groundnut genotypes viz., Kadiri-5, Kadiri-6, Kadiri-9 and Kadiri Harithandra were evaluated under four sowing windows viz., (D1: onset of monsoon, D2:15 days after onset of monsoon, D3: 30 days after onset of monsoon, D4: 45 days after onset of monsoon). The experiment was laid out in Split plot Design and replicated thrice. Pooled results over three years of study revealed that among four varieties studied higher mean pod yield was recorded with K-9 which was on par with K-5 and Harithandhra and significantly superior over K-6.  Among different dates of sowing, pod yields were significantly higher with sowing upto 2nd fortnight of August (D1, D2 & D3) and further delay in sowing time significantly reduced the pod yields. Mean reduction in pod yield among varieties was minimum with K-9 (11.9 %) followed by Harithandhra (14.7 %).  Sowing up to August 2nd fortnight the reduction in yield only to the level of 12.5 % but later in the month of September yield was reduced to 32.2 %.
