Successful production of peanuts is attributed to a few well executed steps:

  1. Superior nodulation provides maximum yield potential
  2. Balanced fertility with careful attention so Calcium is critical
  3. Excellent weed control can sometimes cause root and pod damage
  4. Rotation is critical to maintain a long term production program
  5. With regard to pests an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
  6. Maturation is critical as a high percentage of kernel weight is gained in the last few weeks of the season
  7. None of the above are relevant if peanuts are dug and harvested incorrectly
  8. Always consult a peanut specialist before attempting to grow this crop
  9. Freeze damage makes your crop worthless
