The ultimate goal, Valentine said, is to make peanuts more competitive with cotton and other crop options and, ultimately, to increase profit potential for peanut farmers.

Pledges for the $2 million for the Peanut Genomic Initiative are coming in on schedule with $1,350,000 paid this year. Howard Valentine, Executive Director, reported that the sequencing of both the tetraploid (commercial peanut) and the two diploids (wild parents) are complete. Several teams of researchers are now working on phenotyping of populations to find varieties that are resistant to diseases or quality traits that researchers are looking for. Progress was reported that teams had discovered a group of genes that impact early and late leafspot and another group impacting drought tolerance. Teams in the U.S. China, India and Brazil are all working together on this effort.

The Genomics Initiative Team has announced that a world-wide meeting will be held November 11-13, 2014 in Savannah, GA. The Board also announced that Dr. Steve Brown, interim head of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service, will start working with the Peanut Foundation to assist Valentine next January.

PEANUT GENOME PROJECT ANNOUNCES MEETING - Officials report that Argentina is reviewing the requirements
to join the international Peanut Genome Initiative effort and contribute geno-typical and pheno-typical data. If they join,
their data will be combined with field data Brazil, China, India and the US from over 20 populations that have been found to have desired traits. It will be collected for at least three years. This pheno-typical data will be used to associate with gene markers
for the desired traits. The selected plants will also be sequenced and assembled in years 3 and 4 of the PGI.
The 7th International Peanut Genomic Conference will be held in Savannah, GA at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront on November 11-14, 2014. Over 100 delegates are expected from nine different countries working on peanut genomics. This meeting helps set the strategic plan for genomic research for the next five years. A full report of the accomplishments for 2012-13 for the Peanut Genomic Initiative is available. If you would like the full technical report, please contact Christina Taylor

“Leaf spot is a big problem among growers who spray for it every 10 to 14 days. In addition to looking at the genetic diversity, we have developed some leaf spot-resistant lines through our biotechnology program, and they are showing extremely good resistance to both early and late leaf spot."

FINAL CALL FOR PLEDGES ON GENOMICS FUND - George Birdsong, chairman and Howard Valentine of the Peanut Foundation, have been working with key leaders to contact manufacturers and allied members of the peanut industry to pledge funds over the next 5 years to support the $6 million GENOMICS project. The U.S. team will be in China soon to get an update on research already underway. The 5-year research project will be the largest ever investment by the peanut industry. Growers and shellers have pledged $2 million each over the 5 years and other segments, manufacturers and allied are seeking to match the $2 million. Get your company on the list that will be published at the USA Peanut Congress in June. Don't be left out. Birdsong and Valentine reported this week that final contacts are being made and they are close to the goal of $2 million.Email: [email protected]

The U.S. peanut industry is organizing countries around the world to unite genetic researchers to map the peanut genome. Over $6 million is being sought for this 5 year project that is expected to revolutionize the peanut industry. The growers and shellers have united to pledge $4 million. Allied members are being asked to commit an average of $1,000 for the next 5 years. Many have not been contacted. If you are willing to invest with a PLEDGE as an allied member, please e-mail George Birdsong ([email protected]), chairman or Tyron Spearman ([email protected]) before Friday, April 12. A list of donors will be published at the end of April.
