Abstract

Poor milling quality of peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) results in a substantial financial loss to the peanut industry. With recent development of a sheller and methodology for the evaluation of milling quality for small samples, it is possible for a peanut breeder to evaluate and select a desired level of milling quality. This study was conducted to determine the variation in milling quality among several large-seeded virginia cultivars and among a group of breeding lines from the cross of the Virginia cultivars, NC 5 and Florigiant.
