When the 2013 peanut project was approved and the project leader was informed, peanuts had been already seeded and one cultivar ofO6G was mainly planted in 2013, which made that it was difficult to find a suitable field with another peanut cultivar. We had to change our goals to a comparison between the effects of non-irrigation versus irrigation on the same peanut cultivar (O6G), while the original goal of the project was to examine the physiological responses of different peanut genotypes to drought conditions and identify the surrogate traits for drought tolerance and their underlying molecular controls to help more effectively breed peanut varieties.
