CGV-SM 83005 (Reg. no. GP-91, PI 598135), an improved Spanish peanut (Arachis hypogaea L. subsp.fastigiata var. vulgaris) germplasm, was developed at the Asia Center of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Patancheru, India. It was first tested at the SADC/ICRISAT' (Southern African Development Community/International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics) Groundnut Project, Malawi, in 1982 as an advanced breeding line. After initial evaluations in the 1982-1983 crop season in Malawi, it was included in the SADC regional peanut yield trials in 1983- 1984 as ICGMS 5. Subsequently, it was redesignated as ICGV-SM 83005. After extensive evaluation in regional, national, and on-farm trials, it was released in 1995 as 'Chipego' by the national program in Zambia. It is particularly well adapted to the low- and medium-rainfall areas of Zambia. It has also performed well in other countries of the southern African region.
