Interpretive Summary: Peanut cultivars are developed by several programs under varying environmental conditions. Prior to release to growers, breeders need to evaluate advanced lines under as many of these environmental conditions as possible. Seven lines evaluated at nine locations in 1994 demonstrated significant environmental effects on the adaptability of these lines. The results provide the cooperators, extension personnel, industry representatives and growers with information on potential new cultivars.
Technical Abstract: This publication provides the results of cooperative research among the U.S. Department of Agriculture and certain state universities in the 1994 Uniform Peanut Performance Tests. These tests evaluate the adaptability of advance peanut breeding lines in the major peanut-producing states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and Virginia. Included are summaries of yields and market grades from the peanut performance tests and also summaries on planting, harvesting, soil type, soil analyses, mineral amendments, rainfall, irrigation, and pesticides.
