Peanuts Coming Along Slowly

Posted by romeethredge on May 10, 2013

Not very many peanuts have been planted due to the cool weather and the lowered acreage this year. There are less than half the peanuts in the ground now as the same time last year.

Some that were planted earlier are slow to emerge, but they are coming. They are taking 2 weeks to come up in some cases, especially where they were planted deep. We have had cool air temperatures and the soil temperature has wavered as well.

Mitchell Burke,COO of American Peanut Growers Group, is here checking on the progress of some deep planted peanuts that are slowly coming up.

We are checking seeding rates as we want 6 seed per foot of row for maximum yield.
