This variety was released in 1991 for low input, rainfed cultivation in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, India, where rust (Puccinia arachidis) and late leaf spot (Phaeoisariopsis personata [Mycosphaerella berkeleyi]) cause significant pod yield losses. It was derived from a cross of X14-4-B-19-B (Spanish) and the rust- and late leaf spot-resistant Valencia germplasm line PI259747. It has shown 22% pod yield and 14% seed-yield advantages over the national control cultivar JL24, and outyielded other local cultivars in trials during 1988-90. ICGV86590 has shown resistance to Sclerotium [Corticium] rolfsii and Spodoptera litura. Maturation in the rainy season takes 96-123 days. Shelling turnover is 65%. The tan-coloured seeds contain 48% oil
