Evaluating Cultivars Maturity Range Growth Habit Seed Size Pest Resistance Marketability Seed Availability Oil Chemistry characteristics
Varieties Available in Southeast in 2006 Georgia Green AP-3 Georgia-02C C-99R Georgia-03L Georgia-01R Carver Andru II AT 3081R
Georgia Green Predominant cultivar in SE since 1997 When first released, had best level of resistance to TSWV Seed size smallest of currently available runner type cultivars Some resistance to Rhizoctonia limb rot Will account for 55-60% of seed supply in SE in 2006
AP-3 Released in 2003 by Univ. of Florida Marketing contract with Anderson Peanut Co. Medium maturity, similar to Georgia Green Light green foliage color Level of res’t to TSWV best of any varieties More susceptible to leaf spots “Normal” oil chemistry Seed available from Anderson Peanut Co.
Georgia–02C Released from UGA in 2002 Late maturity High oleic Good level of res’t to CBR TSWV res’t better than Georgia Green
C-99R Released from Univ. of Florida in 1999 Late maturity TSWV res’t better than Georgia Green Larger seed size, approximately 650 seed per pound Can produce excess vine growth
Georgia–03L Released in 2003 from Univ. of Georgia Mid maturing (similar to Georgia Green) “Normal “ oil chemistry Resistance to TSWV = to Georgia-02C (better than Georgia Green Seed size larger than Georgia Green Growth habit exhibits prominent main stem Vigorous early season growth
Georgia–01R Released in 2001 from Univ. of Georgia Late maturing “Normal “ oil chemistry Resistance to TSWV better than any other cultivars except AP-3 and Tifrunner Significant level of res’t to CBR Large seed size (similar to C-99R) Very flat growth habit, virtually no main stem
Carver Medium maturity “Normal” oil chemistry TSWV res’t better than Georgia Green Some resistance to CBR
Andru II Early maturity Marketing contract with Anderson Peanut Co. High oleic TSWV res’t = to Georgia Green White Mold res’t = or better than Georgia Green
