Research was conducted to evaluate the incidence of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) in peanut. Peanut farmers have adjusted planting dates, row patterns, seed spacing, and now are looking to change variety selection to reduce incidence of TSWV. An on on-farm irrigated variety trial was conducted. The experimental design was a randomized complete block. Each rep contained six varieties (GA Green, Georgiacontained Georgia-O3L, AP AP-3, Georgia3, Georgia-O1R, GeorgiaO1R, Georgia-O2C, and C C-99R). The six row plots were planted in a twin row configuration with three seed per each twin row with an average row length of 800 feet. Stand counts were taken after emergence. Data was collected by visually rating each rep for TSWV during the mid point of the growing season. Yield was determined on each rep, and each variety was graded. There was no statistically significant difference in the incidence of TSWV in the trial.
