|GEORGIA-06G is a new high-yielding, TSWV-resistant, large-seeded, runner-type peanut variety that was released in 2006 by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Stations. It was developed at the University of Georgia, Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton, GA. Georgia-06G has a high level of resistance to the spotted wilt disease caused by tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). In 26 multilocation tests conducted in Georgia during the past three-years
||(2003-05), Georgia-06G was found to have the lowest disease incidence, highest pod yield, highest TSMK grade, and highest dollar value return per acre compared to C-99R and other runner-types tested each year. During 2006, Georgia-06G was also found to have the best overall performance compared to five other newly released runner-types as well. Georgia-06G combines high TSWV resistance with medium maturity and excellent yield, grade, and dollar value return per acre.
