In field experiments in 1966 and 1967, 872 peanut entries, largely plant introductions, were screened to identify germ plasm resistant to tobacco thrips. Resistance was measured by rating damage on individual leaves and counting thrips from foiliar buds in ten 7X7 ba lanced lattice experiments in each of the years. Most of the screened entries were damaged more than the tested commercial varieties. Slight to moderate resistance was shown by 50 entries. Plant introductions which ranked first each time they were tested were: Spanish entries (Plant Introductions) 259594, 268770, 268771, 270804, and 306223, and Virginia entries 280688 and 290599. 'Starr,' the standard check entry in all experiments, ranked among the 10 least-damaged entries in 29 of 40 comparisons.
