The experiment was conducted in University farm in 2013 and 2014. The experimental design was a Randomized Complete Block with three replications. The agronomical and quality characteristics such as pod number per plant, pod weight per plant, pod quality calibrations, 100 pod weight, 100 kernel weight, kernel/hull percentage, oil content, crude oil yield, protein content and pod yield per decar were investigated. According to a two-year average, the pod yield was varied between 383-879 kg/da and the highest pod yield was obtained from Sultan (879 kg/da) and Halisbey ( 779.2 kg/da) varieties. The oil and protein content of varieties were varied between 47-51 % and 24-28 % respectively. Keywords : Peanut, double crop, pod yield, agronomical characteristics
