NOTE:  The Runner types:  Georgia Green, AgraTech 201, Tamrun OL01, C156-47, GA962533, Georgia-02C,
Carver, and Norden were planted in this experiment and dug on 09/13/02.  They were eliminated from the 
database due to excessive pod loss resulting from delayed combining, which was caused by two tropical storms
and numerous rain fronts.  Therefore, excessive rainfall along with persistent cloudy, drizzly conditions severely
impacted these varieties after digging.  The editors have elected not to include the yields of these eight runner
types of peanuts because the results do not accurately reflect the peanut variety performance at this location
during the 2002 season.
