Peanut growers must continue to seek ways to more economically and efficiently increase yields in order to remain competitive.

The University of Georgia Peanut Team conducts many research trials across the state’s peanut belt, including work on real farms and on university research farms. At the Sunbelt Ag Expo Darrell Williams Research Farm at Moultrie, Ga., the team has trials to determine yield response and economic return for select tillage treatments, biological inoculant products, foliar fertilizers and plant growth stimulants. The peanut team’s research work and plots were tour stops during the Sunbelt Ag Expo Field Day on July 24.
