Watering Peanuts

Posted by romeethredge on August 16, 2013

Some areas aren’t getting rain now and our crop root systems aren’t the best since we have had such a wet summer. I see many systems running and that is good, we need to supply water where needed. It has also started to warm up and with several recent days in the mid – nineties, plants are using lots of water.

We have fields with large wet areas but some parts of the field are dry.

Here is a chart from the UGA Peanut Production Guide showing how much water peanuts use at different times in their progression.

And the irrigation schedule chart below that shows that most peanuts need about 2 inches per week now, weeks 13 through 17, this would be 90 days old up to around 120 days of age.
