Summary These proceedings report papers presented at the final external review of ACIAR project CS97/114 held at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India on 25-27 February 2002. Yield of peanut in India and Australia is usually limited by water deficits during crop growth. This deficit arises from unpredictable rainfall, high evaporative demands, and production on low water-holding capacity soils. The breeding of drought-resistant genotypes can increase long-term productivity in drought-prone environments. New breeding approaches utilising physiological traits have been proposed to improve the understanding and efficiency of selection for superior drought-tolerant genotypes
