Offset problems related to shorter crop rotation in 2016

Growers cannot “buy” a fungicide or nematicide program to overcome the shortcomings of an abbreviated crop rotation schedule. Growers may be able, in the short term, to remain profitable by combining other practices with judicious use of fungicides and nematicides. 

University of Georgia researcher Dr. Scott Tubbs found that peanut yields increased by as much as 2,000 lb/A by shifting from continuous production to peanuts on a two-year rotation. Growers could further increase yields by 250-700 lb/A by growing peanuts on a three-year rotation where peanuts are planted in a field only one out of three years.
