Yield and Grade Performance
Peanut Variety Trial, 2003
Peanut variety trials, both irrigated and nonirrigated, were planted at this location on
May 29, 2003.  However, extensive damage to the soil, soil compaction, and water-
logged soil conditions from over 27 inches of rain during May, June, and July caused
very low yields and considerable variation in performance among plots within the
tests.  After careful analysis and review of this data, it is the opinion of the editors
that the results of these trials may not accurately reflect the genetic performance
potential of all test entries.  Since this data could be misleading if used in making decisions concerning variety selection, we have chosen not to present the data in
this publication.
