Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Peanut production in Oklahoma is generally located in 3 geographical regions across the state: south western, west central, and far west. Each region differs from the others in environmental and biological stressors that affect crop production, so the same peanut cultivar will likely perform differently in each growing region. Therefore, the Oklahoma Peanut Variety Trials are conducted in each region annually and are designed to test the performance of commonly grown cultivars and potential cultivar releases against each other. Results of these annual trials can serve as a guide for producers when choosing a cultivar to plant. In 2021, the results of these trials reported that performance of runner varieties depended on location, but averages across locations in 2021 indicate that cultivar Lariat was the top entry in value per acre. Also, significant differences in yield were seen among spanish entries across locations and years, but the small-seeded runner-type cultivars AT98-99 and Span17 were the leaders in value per acre. Lastly, significant differences were noted in virginia entry yields across locations and years. Cultivars Contender, Comrade, and ACI351 were the top performers for value per acre among those currently grown.
