Sclerotinia blight was recently identified in a commercial peanut field in Appling County, GA. Plant inoculations and a detached leaflet assay were conducted to determine the susceptibility of the cultivars Georgia Green, Georgia 02C, Georgia 03L, AP-3, Georgia 01R, Hull, C-99R, and Tifrunner. The results suggest that differing levels of resistance are available in runner cultivars used in the southeastern United States.
