[NEEDS CHARTS ADDED]

AT-215: This variety offers high-oleic oil chemistry and a large seed size. It is similar in size, maturity and appearance to ViruGard, with a prominent mainstem and spreading growth habit. It is early maturing at 120 to 125 days in the Southeast and 130 to 135 days in West Texas.

AT-3081R: This runner-type variety has slightly larger pod and seed size than Georgia Green and a normal fatty-acid profile. It has a very prominent mainstem and offers high yields and grades and has good to very good resistance to TSWV, but is susceptible to late leaf spot. It matures at 130 to 140 days in the Southeast.

AT-3085RO: This variety has very good resistance to spotted wilt and a high yield and grade potential. It has high-oleic oil chemistry, pink seed coat and is larger in pod and seed size than Georgia Green. It matures in 130 to 140 days in the Southeast, has a very prominent mainstem and is susceptible to late leaf spot.

Flavor Runner 458: A high oleic runner-type variety widely planted in West Texas. Somewhat slow emergence compared to Tamrun lines, but yields and grades competitively with most runner lines, especially in high-yielding environments. FR 458 is susceptible to most diseases affecting peanut.

Florida-07: This is a medium-to-late runner market-type peanut released from the University of Florida in 2006. It has shown excellent yield potential with good grades. Seed is similar in size to C-99R and, for this reason, gypsum is recommended for additional calcium. It has good-to-excellent resistance to TSWV, some white mold resistance and tolerance to leafspot. Florida-07 has high-oleic oil chemistry with goodto- excellent roasting, blanching and processing characteristics.

FloRunTM ‘107’: This is a medium maturity (135 to 140 days) runner-type variety released by the University of Florida in 2010. The seed size of FloRunTM ‘107’ is similar to Georgia Greener, and it produces a high percentage of medium kernels in the grading process. The variety has demonstrated very good yields and grades with good resistance to spotted wilt (TSWV) and moderate resistance to white mold. FloRunTM ‘107’ has high oleic oil chemistry.

Georgia-02C: Released in 2002 as a new high-oleic runner- type cultivar, Georgia-02C can have later maturity than Georgia Green with seed and pod size slightly larger. This variety has a spreading runner growth habit, with excellent TSWV and CBR resistance.

Georgia-06G: A high-yielding, large-seeded, runner-type variety, Georgia-06G was developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station, Tifton. The variety has shown a high level of resistance to TSWV. Georgia-06G has an intermediate or decumbent runner growth habit, dark green foliage and medium maturity similar to Georgia Green. Georgia- 06G combines high TSWV resistance with medium maturity and excellent yield, grade and dollar value return per acre.

Georgia-07W: High-yielding, TSWV and white mold resistant, runner-type variety, Georgia-07W was developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station, Tifton. The variety has shown a high level of resistance to TSWV and white mold. Georgia-07W has a runner growth habit, dark green foliage and medium maturity similar to Georgia Green. It offers excellent yield, grade and dollar value return per acre.

Georgia-09B: A high-yielding, high-oleic, TSWV-resistant, medium-seeded, runner-type peanut variety, Georgia-09B was developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station, Tifton. The variety has shown a high level of resistance to TSWV. Georgia-09B has an intermediate runner growth habit and medium maturity, similar to Georgia Green. It combines high TSWV resistance and high-oleic oil chemistry with medium maturity and excellent yield, grade and dollar value return per acre.

Georgia-10T: A high-yielding, high-grading, TSWV-resistant, large-seeded, runner-type peanut variety, Georgia- 10T was developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton. The variety has shown a high level of resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus. Georgia-10T has a spreading runner growth habit, dark green foliage and medium-to-late maturity. It should be an excellent variety for an earlier (April) planting option in the Southeast because of its resistance and maturity.

Georgia-12Y: This is a new variety from the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton. It has good resistance to TSWV and white mold.

Georgia Green: High yields, good grades and resistance to TSWV and white mold made Georgia Green a popular variety. An increased dollar return per acre compared with other runner varieties and a significantly higher percentage of total sound mature kernels (TSMK) complement the disease resistance. Georgia Green does not have resistance to leaf spot.

Georgia Greener: A high-yielding, typical-seeded, runnertype variety, Georgia Greener was developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton. The variety has shown a high level of resistance to TSWV and offers some resistance to Cylindrocladium Black Rot (CBR). As the name implies, it has dark green foliage, intermediate or decumbent runner growth habit and typical runner seed size. Georgia Greener combines high TSWV resistance with medium maturity and excellent yield, grade and dollar value return per acre.

Red River Runner: This is a release from Oklahoma State University that has a pedigree similar to that of Tamrun OL07. This variety has the high oleic trait and improved tolerance to tomato spotted wilt and Sclerotinia blight when compared to Flavor Runner 458.

Tamrun OL01: A high oleic Texas A&M release similar to Tamrun 96. Pods and seed are much larger than Flavor Runner 458 and a little larger than Tamrun 96 and OL02. Disease resistance nearly equal to Tamrun 96. Tamrun OL01 may have higher sugar content than most varieties and has produced hard seed in some situations. This variety is popular in South Texas due to TSWV resistance.

Tamrun OL02: A high oleic Texas A&M runner with yields comparable to Flavor Runner 458 and disease resistance similar to Tamrun 96 with tolerance to TSWV, pod rot and southern blight. Tamrun OL02 has seed size slightly larger than Flavor Runner 458 and lower sugar content than Tamrun OL01 and Flavor Runner 458.

Tamrun OL07: Medium-to-late maturing high oleic Texas A&M release has improved disease resistance compared to Tamrun OL01 and OL02 and FR 458. Yield similar to these varieties in disease-free situations, but significantly higher in the presences of TSWV or Sclerotinia blight. Seed size intermediate between Tamrun OL02 and OL01.

Tamrun OL11: This variety is well suited for the West Texas growing region and has performed well under Sclerotinia blight conditions. Tamrun OL11 has resistance to Sclerotinia blight equal to that of Tamrun OL07 and it grades equal to or better than Flavor Runner 458, which is about two percentage points higher than Tamrun OL07 on average.

Tifguard: Devoloped by USDA’s Agriculture Research Service in Tifton, Ga., Tifguard has resistance to nematodes so as to be characterized as “near immunity,” and it offers good yields and grades, especially in places where there would be no yield from other varieties. It offers good resistance to TSWV and maturity is similar to Georgia Green.

TUFRunnerTM ‘727’: This is a medium to medium-late maturing (135-145 days), high oleic, runner market-type peanut cultivar with very good resistance to white mold, resistance to TSWV and some resistance to late leaf spot. It has a prostrate, runner growth habit with large vines and large runner seed size. Yield and grade of TUFRunnerTM ‘727’ have been excellent. The prefix “TUF” is an acronym for The University of Florida.
