Bailey II Description
US PROTECTED VARIETY and seed can be sold only as a Class of Certified Seed.
BAILEY II was released by North Carolina State University. Bailey II is a high-oleic, high yielding Virginia-type peanut cultivar selected in a conventional breeding program. Bailey II has alternate branching pattern, intermediate runner growth habit, and medium green foliage. Bailey II has approximately 42% jumbo pods, 44% fancy pods, seed with tan seed coat averaging 904 mg seed-1, and extra-large kernel content of 35%. The high-oleic trait produces an array of changes in the fatty acid composition of peanut oil compared with normal-oleic cultivars, most notably the elevation of oleic acid and the reduction of linoleic acid content. Compared to normal-oleic cultivars, it will exhibit extended shelf life. It is most similar to the recurrent parent ‘Bailey’ in yield and disease resistance; although Bailey II will exhibit more jumbo pods, super extra-large kernels, and extra-large kernels. Bailey II is partially resistant to the four most common diseases in the Virginia-Carolina peanut production area: leaf spot, Cylindrocladium black rot (CBR), Sclerotinia blight (SB), and tomato spotted wilt tospovirus (TSWV). High oleic testing is required for all classes of certified seed lots.
