Description and Performance of the Virginia-Market-Type Peanut Cultivars
While the runner-type peanut is the predominant market type grown in the United States, the Virginia-Carolinas region has traditionally grown only the largeseeded, Virginia-type peanut. There are several old — as well as new — Virginia-type cultivars available to the peanut industry. While information on older cultivars is available in Extension publications, information on the most recently released cultivars is lacking. Therefore, this publication will provide growers, shellers, and processors with the latest research-based information on the performance of the newest cultivars and currently grown cultivars.
