Future Peanut Breeding

This investment in peanut breeding will deliver superior new varieties with increased reliability and profitability for growers. The specific traits of high priority include higher yields, better disease control (late leaf spot, leaf rust and net blotch), Peanut Kernel Shrivel tolerance and improved quality (ie seed size, blanchability etc.).

This is the final investment in transition of the breeding program to the private sector. At the completion of this investment, commercial arrangements for varieties to be made available to industry will be in place.
