The aim of this study was to evaluate thegrowth and yield performance ofBARI-2011 groundnut variety at four different locations of Balochistan Provence, Pakistan viz: Quetta, Loralai, Panjgoor and Pishin under various agro-climatic conditions during dry summer season 2015. The study was carried out by a randomized complete block design (RCBD) method with four replications. Results showed that the significant differences were found for days to maturity, number of pods per plant, 20 pods length, 100-kernals weight and dry pod yield kg ha-1 among different locations. The crop matured earlier at Panjgoor with minimum days to maturity (152.75) as compared to the rest of the locations. The data for yield was ranged from 1061 to 2122 kg ha-1. Bari 2011 showed maximum Dry pod yield (2122 kg ha-1), 100 kernels weight (58.00 gm), 20 pods length (70.25 cm) and No of pods plant-1 (49.50) at Quetta that fallowed by Loralai and Panjgoor, respectively. The lowest dry pod yield (1061 kg ha-1)was recorded at Pishin. The results indicated that BARI-2011 groundnut genotype showed highest dry pod yield kg ha-1 at Quetta which fallowed by Loralai as compared to other locations, so it was concluded that the climate condition of Quetta and Loralai are best for BARI-2011 groundnut cultivation.
