Here, a rapid liquid soaking technology for peanut pods is discussed. The vacuum pressure and treatment time significantly influenced the germination of peanuts. After pretreatment, the highest germination of two kinds of peanuts, 'TianFu No.18' and 'GanHua No.7', increased 8.7 and
4.9%, respectively, compared with the regularly soaked samples. Germination increased with processing time at -0.06 MPa. However, it decreased with processing time at -0.08 and -0.1 MPa, while the electric conductance increased at the same time. The optimum technological conditions for the
pretreatment of pod-sowing was 15 minutes at -0.06 MPa. A field experiment showed that the emergence rate and times of pod-sowing samples were comparable to those of seed-sowing and the regularly soaked samples. Additionally, the number of effective branches and yield were superior to those
of the control group.
