More than 1200 genotypes of Arachis hypogaea and ten other Arachis species were evaluated for seed resistance to strains NRRL A13794 and 2999. Two Argentine types, PI337394 and PI337409, were resistant to both strains and the commercial varieties Wilco 1, Florunner and Argentine were moderately resistant. The two resistant genotypes showed a consistently low level of seed infection through four generations of evaluation.
