A study of thrips resistance in peanuts begun by the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station in ]966 was extended in 1968 and 1969 to 18 additional field and laboratory experiments. The 350 test entries included 24'3 Plant Introductions, 9 varieties, and] 36 selections. and inc1nded 225 entries not previously tested for thrips resistance by this station.

Peak populations in 1968 occurred on prebloom plants as was true in ]966 and 1967. Eight of the Plants introduction had damage levels in the field ranging from 81 to 93% of damage sustained by 'Starr,' the check variety. A 'Valencia' type peanut, PI 280688, was one of the more promising entries and demonstrated antibiosis and nonpreference as its mechanisms of resistance. A few selections from commercial varieties, made by Oklahoma peanut breeders to test agronomic performance, had moderately less damage than their parents.
