|GEORGIA-07W is a new high-yielding, TSWV-resistant, white mold-resistant, runner-type peanut variety that was released in 2007 by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Stations. It was developed at the University of Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton GA. Georgia-07W has a high level of resistance to both tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) and to white mold, or stem rot. In 14 multi-location tests conducted in Georgia over three years (2004-06), Georgia-07W was found to have the lowest disease incidence, highest pod yield,
|| highest TSMK grade, and highest dollar value return per acre when compared to C-99R and other tested runner varieties. During additional multi-location tests conducted in 2007, Georgia-07W had the best overall performance compared to five other newly released runner-type varieties. Georgia-07W combines high TSWV and high white mold resistance with medium maturity and excellent yield, grade, and dollar value return per acre.
||GEORGIA-07W was developed by Dr. William D. Branch and Dr. Timothy B. Brenneman at the University of Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton GA. It is a protected peanut variety that can only be sold as a class of certified seed and only by individuals licensed by the Georgia Seed Development Commission (GSDC) under guidelines established in conjunction with the
University of Georgia Research Foundation (UGARF).
