    Heat of Respiration of Wet, Spanish Peanuts As Affected by Initial Temperature and Moisture¹

Abstract

The heat of respiration of high moisture Spanish peanuts was measured for seven tests during 1971 at 60°F and 30% MC and in 1972 for four tests at 70°F, 30% MC and four tests at 70°F, 40% MC. Results at 40% MC show a nearly constant rate of respiration. Including data from Suter, at 30% MC the heat of respiration is higher at temperatures of 60°F and above. In addition, variations between replicates are greater at higher initial temperatures. Differences within the same season were just as large as those between seasons.
