Data from Oklahoma peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) performance tests from 1969 through 1978 were used to estimate genotype X environment interaction variance components for pod yield, %TSMK, %SS, %OK, and gross return per unit area. The objectives of this study were to determine if it would be advantageous to select cultivars for specific regions, and to determine the most efficient combination of years, locations, and replications to use when evaluating peanut lines.
Evidence was obtained that genotypes perform consistently between irrigated and nonirrigated locations for the traits studied. The variance of the difference between two cultivars or lines was calculated for % TSMK, pod yield, and gross return using various combinations of years, locations, and replications. Results indicate that, when testing for gross return, the time presently allotted for testing could be reduced without sacrificing accuracy.
