1. Identify nematode resistant genotypes with potential as cultivars.
Breeding work to develop nematode resistant peanut cultivars will continue in 2013 and will include crossing, single plant selection, yield testing and genotypic and phenotypic screening for nematode resistance. Screening will include a cooperative disease nursery conducted in Georgia and funded by the National Peanut Board and genetic screening with the two nematode markers 197/909 and GM5765. We are unsure where this work will be done in 2013.
2. Conduct on-farm demonstration/verification tests of variety performance
We propose to continue conducting on-farm variety demonstration tests in Jackson, Columbia, Hamilton and Washington counties in Florida. The cultivars will likely include Florida-07, Georgia-06G, Georgia-07W, Georgia Greener, and Tifguard depending on seed availability and seed costs. Results from these tests help to confirm results from small plot tests and provide additional insight into variety performance.
