This study was conducted as a main crop in University of Cukurova, Faculty of Agriculture

Field Crops Department in 2019. The objective of this study was to determine the yield

potential, important agronomic and quality characteristics of advanced peanut breeding lines

(F8) in main crop growing condition. In this study, 10 advanced peanut breeding lines belonging

to Halisbey x Flower-22 (HC-1, HC-2, HC-3, HC-4 lines), Halisbey x Wilson (HW-1, HW-4,

HW-5 lines), Halisbey x NC-7 (HN-3, HN-4 lines) and Halisbey x Ha-Runner (HR-1 lines)

crossing and two standard varieties (Halisbey and NC-7) were used as a plant material. The

experimental design was a Randomized Complete Block with three replications. Pod number

and pod weight per plant, 100-seed weight, shelling percentage, pod and kernel yield per

hectare, oil and protein content values of lines were investigated. As a result; the pod number

per plant of breeding lines varied between 27.5-38.8 pod plant-1, pod weight was 62.3-87.6 g

plant-1, 100-seed weight 80.4-124.3 g, shelling percentage was 66.0-70.9%, pod yield was

6434-7979 kg ha-1 and kernel yield was varied between 4401-5451 kg ha-1. The oil and protein

content of breeding lines varied between %45.4-47.9 and % 25.0-27.2, respectively. This

breeding program will continue by the selected lines at the future.
