Peanut Planting

Posted by romeethredge on April 27, 2012

We are thankful for last week’s rains that are letting us plant dryland crops. Here is Will Hornsby checking behind their new John Deere twin row planters. His goal is 3 seed per foot on each twin to equal 6 peanut seed per foot of row based on 36 inch rows. He has good moisture right now but dry weather is in the forecast.  He’s planting Ga O6G variety peanuts.


























James Childree and Brandon Franklin are filling up these Cole twin row peanut planters. They run them slowly and they do well.
