Research was conducted to evaluate three peanut varieties. The field selected was planted utilizing conservation tillage methods and was non-irrigated. There was much interest in GAO3L and AT 3085RO prior to peanut planting, but limited farmer experience with these varieties. Farmers continue to look for successful peanut varieties comparable to GA Green. Funds for this trial were provided through a Georgia Peanut Commission grant. Due to the drought conditions the plot was planted June 8, 2007,and digging and harvest was delayed due to rain. The experimental design was a randomized complete block. Each replication contained three varieties: GA Green, Georgia-O3L, and AT3085RO. The eight row plots were planted in a 36 inch row spacing with six seed per linear foot of row with similar row lengths across the trial. Stand counts were taken after emergence. The plot length was measured using GPS. Yield was determined on each rep, and each variety was graded.
