Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Seminar Series

September 8, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm

Dr. Maria Balota
Professor of Crop Physiology at Virginia Tech
will present a seminar entitled:

“Peanut variety research at the Tidewater Agricultural Research and Extension Center”


Cultivar selection plays an important role in maximizing peanut production. Created in 1968, the Peanut Variety and Quality Evaluation (PVQE) is a multi-state program for the evaluation of Virginia-type cultivars and breeding lines and is unique among university peanut programs because of its interstate scope. Simply put, the PVQE is the official “pipeline” for Virginia-type peanut cultivar development for the Virginia-Carolina region. Dr. Balota will present the specifics of the PVQE program, and other crop physiology related projects in her program through collaboration with the NCSU/Department of Crop and Soil Sciences colleagues.
