Red River Runner offers “super grades”

A new peanut variety, Red River Runner, may soon become the dominant runner-type peanut grown in Oklahoma. Superior grades could mean as much as an extra $200 per acre to farmers.  “With the earlier maturity of Red River Runner and the improved grades and more money to the producer, I think farmer interest will be high. We will plant as much seed as is available next year and I think we will see significant acreage in 2012,” says Oklahoma State University Extension peanut specialist Chad Godsey.
