Research Project: Development of Improved High-Oleic Peanut Varieties

Location: Wheat, Peanut, and Other Field Crops Research

Project Number: 3072-21220-008-14-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 15, 2016
End Date: Aug 14, 2021

Objective:
Develop new and improved high-oleic peanut varieties with value-added traits that are adapted to perform optimally in Oklahoma and Texas.

Approach:
Through traditional breeding practices, breeding lines with value-added traits will be established and tested for promising performance in Oklahoma and Texas. Variety performance and disease resistance trials will be conducted across Oklahoma by ARS and the cooperator. Results from these tests are crucial to variety release.
