Join us for a late season peanut update. Dr. Scott Montfort, UGA Extension Scientist, will be here Monday, August 24th for a joint meeting with the Seminole County Young Farmers. This will be at 7:30pm at the Ag Center on Town and Country Road.

Peanuts are looking good. Even the rainfed ones look like they will yield well, however we need continued moisture until they are at least 120 days of age. I’ve maturity tested a few samples of old peanuts and they are mostly looking to come off in the 140 to 143 day range. I’ve heard that a few end rows may be dug next week.

 

Here’s a photo we took of a field of 130 day old Florun 107’s, from Brad Thompson’s Helicopter.
