2017: Runner-Type Varieties

Florida-07: This medium-to-late runner market-type peanut was released from the University of Florida in 2006. It has shown excellent yield potential with good grades. Seed are larger and, for this reason, gypsum is recommended for additional calcium. It has good-to-excellent resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), some white mold resistance and tolerance to leaf spot. Florida-07 has high-oleic oil chemistry with good-to-excellent roasting, blanching and processing characteristics.

FloRun™ ‘107’: This is a medium-maturity (135 to 140 days) runner-type variety released by the University of Florida. The seed size of FloRun™ ‘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 TSWV and moderate resistance to white mold. FloRun™ ‘107’ has high-oleic oil chemistry.

pgfeb17-vgrunnertypetiftongai-14-16Georgia-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-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-12Y: This is a high-yielding, TSWV-resistant and white mold resistant, medium seeded, runner-type variety released by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Stations and developed at the University of Georgia, Coastal Plain Experiment Station, Tifton Campus.

pgfeb17-vgrunnertypetiftonga-ni14-16During three years averaged over multiple location tests in Georgia, Ga. 12Y had significantly higher yield, dollar value return per acre and number of seed per pound compared to Georgia 10T. However, Georgia 10T has a higher TSMK grade than Georgia 12Y. Georgia 12Y is most similar to Georgia 10T in later maturity. Both should be excellent varieties for an early planting date option in the southeast U.S. peanut production area.

Georgia-13M: This is a new high-yielding, high-oleic, TSWV-resistant, small-seeded, runner-type peanut variety released by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station in 2013. It was developed at the University of Georgia, Coastal Plain Experiment Station. During a three-year period, it averaged over multiple location tests in significantly less total disease incidence and greater dollar value return per acre when compared to other high-oleic, runner-type varieties.

Georgia 13M has a smaller runner seed size. Georgia 13M combines high yield, TSWV resistance with the excellent roasted flavor of Georgia Green and the high-oleic trait for longer shelf life and improved oil quality of peanut and peanut products. Seed will be limited for 2015.pgfeb17-vgrunnertypemiscms-15-16

Georgia-14N: Released in 2014 by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station and developed at the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Station, this small-seeded, runner-type peanut variety is high-yielding, resistant to spotted wilt and root-knot nematodes and has high-oleic oil chemistry. In a three-year trial, Georgia-14N had significantly less TSWV and total disease incidence, higher yield, grade and dollar value return per acre compared to Tifguard. The high-oleic trait offers longer shelf-life and improved oil quality of peanut and peanut products.

GEORGIA-16HO: is a new high-yielding, high-oleic, TSWV-resistant, large-seeded, runner-type peanut variety released by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station in 2016. pgfeb17-vgrunnertypemidvillegai-14-16Georgia-16HO combines high dollar value and TSWV-resistance with the high-oleic trait for longer shelf-life and improved oil quality of peanut and peanut products.

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 is 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.pgfeb17-vgrunnertypeplainsgai-14-16

Tamrun OL07: This medium-to-late maturing high-oleic Texas A&M release has improved disease resistance compared to Tamrun OL01 and OL02 and FR 458. It yields similarly to these varieties in disease-free situations, but significantly higher in the presence 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: Developed 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.pgfeb17-vgmedmatureruntypefl-14-16

TUFRunner™ ‘297’: Developed by the University of Florida, this variety is an extra-large seeded runner-type peanut with high-oleic oil chemistry. Released in 2014, this variety has demonstrated very good resistance to white mold, good resistance to TSWV, but is susceptible to leaf spot. Yield and grade have been excellent. It has a prominent center stem with semi-prostate growth habit. Seed supply will be limited to production of Foundation and Registered seed in 2015.

TUFRunner™ ‘511’: The University of Florida released this variety in July 2013. TUFRunner™ ‘511’ is a large-seeded, medium-maturity runner-type peanut with high-oleic oil chemistry. It has very good resistance to white mold and moderate resistance to TSWV. Yield and grade of TUFRunner™ ‘511’ have been excellent. The seed size is similar to Georgia-06G with a similar outturn of medium, No. 1 and jumbo kernels. The growth habit of TUFRunner™ ‘511’ is prostrate with a good center stem. The seed supply for 2015 is limited.pgfeb17-vgavgmedmatureruntypefl-13-16

TUFRunner™ ‘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 TUFRunner™ ‘727’ have been excellent.
