Abstract

The study was conducted to determine the agronomic and economic performances of four peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) varieties under Lal-lo, Cagayan, Philippines. The four (4) peanut varieties were randomly planted following the Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) in three replications. Considering each variety as an experimental treatment. Evaluation of agronomic and economic performances of four (4) peanut varieties (Luna Seeded, BPI Pn 9, NSIC Pn 11, and NSIC Pn 17) was done at the Cagayan State University Lal-lo Campus. Results showed that the agronomic and economic performances of four peanut varieties significantly differ under the Lal-lo Cagayan condition. Luna seeded peanut variety significantly gave taller plants, Length of pods (cm), Number of Seeds of Pods, and least number of undeveloped pods. The results showed that this variety grew best in Lal-lo area as manifested by significantly high economic performance, i.e., heaviest weight of kernels/10 plants (kg), highest survival rate (%) and shelling (%). The variety registered the highest yield in tons.-ha and highest return on investment (ROI).It is recommended that: (a) another trial must be conducted to confirm and give more conclusive results; (b) further research and observations must be performed at different planting season. An attempt to do experiment on farmers’ field must be conducted to determine the agronomic and economic performances at farmers’ level.
