Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Auburn University- National Peanut Laboratory (‘AU-NPL 17’) was developed from a pure line population intended for cultivar release. The original pure line, AU14-29, originated as an F6 single-plant selection from the cross of Tifguard (Holbrook, et al. 2008) x York (Gorbet, et al., 2011) and was composited in the F6 generation. ‘AU-NPL 17’ has a prostrate growth habit with main stem. Seeds of ‘AU-NPL 17’ are pink testa seed coats. It is a high-yielding, tomato spot wilted virus (TSWV)-resistant, and leaf spot tolerance, high grade, and superior shelling characters. It has high oleic fatty acid content and good flavor. ‘AU-NPL 17’ is a large-seeded with an average weight of 100 seeds of 69g, which is a slightly smaller than ‘Georgia-06G’. ‘AU-NPL 17’ flowers approximately 35 days after planting, is of medium maturity of 140 days at Southeastern growing region.
