Interpretive Summary: State-wide peanut variety trials were conducted in three Oklahoma locations. Performance of runner varieties depended on location but long-term averages indicate Red River Runner is the top performer in most locations. Cultivar AT99-98-14 consistently performed best at most locations over the last several years compared to other varieties. Breeding line ARSOK-S140-1OL exceeded OLin and Tamnut OL06 at most locations in long-term average performance. This breeding line will be released as 'OLe' in 2014. High oleic breeding lines ARSOK-V30B and ARSOK-V31 (Virginias) and ARSOK-R35 (runner) performed very well at most locations. These tests will aid in screening peanut advanced breeding lines for agronomic performance.

Technical Abstract: Managed peanut variety trials located in various state-wide regions are an essential part of peanut variety development and release. In this study, trials were conducted in Caddo, Beckham, and Custer counties of Oklahoma. Trial entries included 9 runner types, 4 Spanish types, and 7 Virginia types. Performance of runner varieties depended on location but long-term averages indicate Red River Runner is the top performer in most locations. Cultivar AT99-98-14 consistently performed best at most locations over the last several years compared to other varieties. Breeding line ARSOK-S140-1OL exceeded OLin and Tamnut OL06 at most locations in long-term average performance. This breeding line will be released as 'OLe' in 2014. High oleic breeding lines ARSOK-V30B and ARSOK-V31 (Virginias) and ARSOK-R35 (runner) performed very well at most locations. These tests will aid in screening peanut advanced breeding lines for agronomic performance.
