- B. L. Tillman *
‘Florida-07’ (Reg. No. CV-104, PI 652938) peanut (Arachis hypogaea L. subsp. hypogaea var. hypogaea) cultivar was developed by the University of Florida, Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, North Florida Research and Education Center near Marianna, FL. It was approved for release in 2006. Florida-07 has larger-than-average runner market–type seeds and pods. The growth habit of Florida-07 is prostrate, typical of runner-type peanut cultivars. Under irrigation in Florida, it matures about 140 d after planting, which places it in the category of medium-late relative maturity. Release of Florida-07 was made on the basis of its excellent pod yield potential, competitive kernel grade (percentage total sound mature kernels), high-oleic fatty acid oil chemistry, and resistance to spotted wilt (caused by Tomato spotted wilt tospovirus) and white mold (Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc.).Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
