© 2023 by the author(s).This study was conducted to determine the macro and micro element contents of fourteen peanuts in Turkey. Virginia (NC-7, Halisbey, Arıoğlu-2003, Sultan Flower-22, Osmaniye-2005, Brantley, Wilson, Batem-5025, Batem-Cihangir, NC V 11 and Polen) Runner (Georgia Green) and Spanish (Florispan) market types have been evaluated. The research was conducted for two years (2015 to 2016) under main crop conditions in the trial areas of belonging to the Oil Seed Research Institute. The highest nitrogen content is from the Florispan (4.56%) variety, the highest phosphorus and sodium content is from the Halisbey (0.10%) variety, the highest potassium content is from the Sultan (0.46%) variety, the highest calcium content is from the Flower-22 (0.07%) variety and the highest the magnesium content was taken from Arıoğlu-2003 (0.26%) variety. The highest iron content is in Batem-Cihangir (27.34 mg kg-1) variety, the highest copper content is in Flower-22 (7.08 mg kg-1), the highest zinc content is in Sultan (29.35 mg kg-1), the highest manganese content NC-7 (20.61 mg kg-1) variety, the highest boron content was found in Florispan (26.99 mg kg-1) variety. According to the results of this study, varieties with different chemical compositions can be used in food and breeding studies.
