Project Comment'A population of 164 F8 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) was produced by mating the Groundnut bruchid resistant ''VG 9514'' with the susceptible ''TAG 24''. The RIL population was cultivated in a randomized complete block design during the rainy seasons of two different years (2010 and 2011) at the Agricultural field station of the Babha Atomic Research Centre in Gauribidanur, India. All pods were dried in the sun before a random subset of 93 RILs (out of 164 original RILs) were phenotyped during both 2010 and 2011 for aspects of bruchid resistance in a laboratory setting. Twenty pods were placed in beakers along with two male and two female adult bruchids and incubated for 72 hours to allow the insects to lay eggs under no-choice circumstances, after which time the insects were removed. The pods were maintained for 60 days; during this time insects hatched from the eggs laid on the pods, grew as larvae by feeding on the peanut seeds, and completed pupation to emerge as adult bruchids.'
