PEANUT PROJECT

"Basic and applied studies on aflatoxin and Aspergillus flavus management and interaction with peanut in the field" is a collaborative project with University of Georgia, USA, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, University of Botswana and Botswana College of Agriculture (Department of Crop Science and Production). This project is funded by USAID. The BCA is responsible for field evaluation of promising fungal, drought and insect resistant peanut germplasm under Botswana conditions. Seven breeding lines and 11 core collections (varieties) from the USA are being assessed and compared with two local varieties. Data being collected include agronomic characteristics, yield, incidence of Aspergillus flavus and aflatoxins in the nuts both in the field and after harvest.
