|GEORGIA GREENER is a new high-yielding, TSWV-resistant, typical-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 Greener 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 Greener was
||found to have the lowest disease incidence, highest pod yield, highest TSMKgrade, and highest dollar value return per acre compared to Georgia Green and all of the other runner-type varieties tested each year. Also during 2006, Georgia Greener was again found to have the best overall field performance compared to five other newly released runner-types as well. Georgia Greener as the name implies has darker green foliage, a typical runner seed size, and a medium maturity similar to Georgia Green.
