Tifguard is a new high-yielding, medium-maturity, runner market-type peanut variety.  It was jointly released by the USDA-ARS and the University of Georgia.  It is the first peanut variety with a high level of resistance to both the peanut root-knot nematode and TSWV.  Tifguard has a runner-type growth habit with dark green foliage and a prominent main stem.  It has demonstrated very good yields and grades when tested with no nematode pressure in tests in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina.  When tested in fields with high nematode pressure it has demonstrated very good yields and grades without the use of nematicides.  Tifguard also has a moderate level of resistance to leaf spot and Cylindrocladium black rot (CBR).
