Variety selection is one of the most important decisions in peanut production. The best variety choice is one that will achieve a rapid, uniform stand and provide good yields and grades over a wide range of growing conditions.
Most varieties now offer some level of resistance to multiple diseases.
Field history, irrigation, planting and harvest capabilities, seed availability, seed quality and marketing opportunities are all factors that affect variety selection. On a field-by-field basis and considering these factors, select the variety or varieties that would best fit into your production system.
