Peanut Varietal Improvement for Thailand and the Philippines

Approach:

The goals of this project were to increase yields and quality of peanut in cooperating Asian countries and the U.S., while decreasing the dependency on chemical inputs. This should improve not only the economic situation for farmers, but also have a positive impact on the ecology and sustainability of agriculture. Breeding efforts need to be directed toward development of cultivars that fit current and future cropping systems and marketing potential.
