The Ga 12V was the highest yielding variety probably due to the fact that we had so much rain during the season creating lots of disease pressure. The rains continued into harvest season which delayed harvest timing for many varieties giving Ga 12V a better opportunity to stand out due to the fact it is a slightly longer season variety than the other varieties. The new AUN PL 17 and FloRun 331 were the second best varieties. They are very comparable to each other with the AU 17 having a slight advantage in withstanding more disease pressure.
