Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the agronomic and quality traits of peanut varieties having different pod characteristics at different harvesting times in the main crop growing season. This study was conducted in the experimental area of the Cukurova University Faculty of Agriculture Department of Field Crops as a main crop in 2015 and 2016. The experimental design was a split plots with three replications. Five peanut varieties, Halisbey, NC-7, G.Green, Florispan and G.Red, belonging to four different market types, were used as plant material. Based on two year average, the differences between the varieties were significant for the investigated traits harvested at different times in the main crop growing season. The results indicated that the means of pod number and pod weight per plant, 100 seed weight, shelling percentage, pod and kernel (seed) yield per hectare, oil percentage and crude oil yield per hectare were increased except protein content of seed when the harvesting was delayed.
