The objective of this project was to standardize peanut varieties tested over all test locations in the Mississippi Peanut Variety Trials. The reason for this research is to conduct unbiased yield trials on all peanuts evaluated in the Mississippi variety trials to determine which particular varieties are best suited to the different environmental and geographic areas of the state. These results are determined by planting these peanut variety trials in those areas of the state where the soil type is suitable for peanut production and those areas where peanuts are commonly grown. Each variety is packaged and maintained in the same manner throughout the season, so to evaluate their yield potential when compared to other varieties within the same block of land, grown under the same conditions. There were eight peanut varieties that were evaluated for yield performance in the Mississippi State Peanut OVT's in 2013. These eight varieties were planted in trials that were conducted at five sites within the state of Mississippi, under both irrigated and non-irrigated growing conditions. One of these peanut OVT sites was center pivot irrigated, as needed and the remaining four locations were grown under non-irrigated conditions.
