ABSTRACT: The research was conducted to determine changes in soil moisture content and yield of several peanut varieties (Arachis hypogaea L.) were given drip irrigation in dry land, which was held on dry land (marginal) Gowok Curug village, district Serang, Banten province in September 2011 until January 2012. This research used a factorial experiment arranged in Split Plot Design with two factors. The first factor was variety consisting of: Panther varieties, Zebra and Local (from Cikeusal, Serang) as the main plot, the second factor was drip irrigation consisting of: drip irrigation with emitter cigarette filter, drip irrigation with emitter infusion regulator and control (conducted watering four days) as the subplot and repeated three times. The research showed that the best varieties to change in moisture content and yield of peanut was local varieties, because more adaptive and tolerant on the environment. While the best irrigation was drip irrigation with emitter infusion regulator, because not having a blockage in the emitter, so that the water ran smoothly and moisture content was always available to peanut plants.
