Pod-related traits are important to peanut yield. To better understand genetic basis of peanut yield, QTL mapping for pod-related traits was conducted using 166 recombinant inbred lines. The lines were derived from parents Zhonghua 5 and ICGV 86699 which were significantly different in pod size and weight. Pod length and width in 5 environments and 100-pod weight in 6 environments were investigated for QTL mapping by population phenotyping and by genotyping. Nine pod-length QTLs, 10 pod-width QTLs and 12 100-pod-weight QTLs were de? tected respectively. Among them, 10 QTLs were repeatedly detected in multiple environments (including 6 stable QTLs detected in different locations). Among the 6 stable ones, 5 QTLs (qPLB06.2, qPLB06.3, qPWB06.2, qHP? WB04.3 and qHPWB06.3) had more than 10% PVE (phenotypic variation explained) in at least one environment. Five QTL clusters were identified. QTL clusters Ⅳ and Ⅴ, located on B06, were collocated with pod-related QTLs, which were stably detected in multiple environments. The collocations showed obvious genetic correlations among the pod traits.
