Abstract: Plant architecture plays an important role in the formation of crop yield. Peanuts blooms on the
ground and bears fruit underground, the specific characteristics determine that the cultivars with more flowers at the
base have higher single plant productivity. Due to differences of ecological environment and cultivation habits, pea⁃
nut cultivars of three different growth habits including erect type, semi spreading type and spreading type, coexist in
different countries and different ecology regions, and the yield of peanut varies greatly in different regions. In this
paper, the progress of the main archievements on peanut plant architecture was summarized, and the relationship be⁃
tween plant architecture and yield formation was reviewed. The characteristics of ideal plant architecture and ideas
for peanut ideal architecture breeding were suggested.

Key words: peanut, plant architecture, high yield, breeding
