Specialty´╝ÜPeanut Genetics

Goals of the program are, in collaboration with peanut breeding programs in College Station and Stephenville, to:

  1.  release new cultivars for Texas growers, incorporating: high yield; improved edible seed quality -early maturity, high oleic oil; resistance to water deficit, heat, and salt stress; resistance to disease and pests, especially leafspot, nematodes, and Sclerotinia blight
  2. Participate in the International Peanut Genome Initiative, and use genomics technology in cultivar development
  3. Participate in international collaborations with scientists, especially in Ghana and Burkina Faso through a Peanut and Mycotoxin Innovation Lab/ USAID project
