In this note we extend the range of previously published tables of primitive polynomials over finite fields. For each p" < 1050 with p < 97 we provide a primitive polynomial of degree n over Fp. Moreover, each polynomial has the minimal number of nonzero coefficients among all primitives of degree n over p.
