Disease resistant peanut varieties for semi-arid environments

Approach

The overall goal of TX/BCP was to identify or develop peanut lines and varieties adapted to non-irrigated  production in drought prone environments that have resistance to pathogens causing economic loss, and to identify cultural practices that will maximize the yield potential of cultivars fitted to the environments of Senegal/West Africa and Texas.
