The UPPT was established in 1973 through an informal arrangement among cooperating scientists involving seven major peanut-producing states. In 1995, plant material transfer agreements were also accepted among all cooperators in the UPPT.
The purpose of these tests is to evaluate the commercial potential of advanced peanut breeding lines not formally released. The UPPT continues to serve as a valuable testing arrangement for U.S. peanut breeding programs to measure the adaptability of potential new cultivars over a wide range of diverse environments.
