Other trial notes

The trials were  conducted at Bundaberg and Kingaroy -two key peanut production sites to better understand how peanut varieties with different plant architecture types and population densities impact critical yield formation growth stages of flowering and pegging in peanuts. 

La Niña was in place during the last two Southern Hemisphere summers.

Very wet towards maturity favouring disease and water logging development and hamper harvesting operations.
