A seed peanut's journey to a good stand

Seed peanuts start with a grower who knows 'skimping' is not an option for high-quality production.

From a field and back into a field, seed peanuts take a journey, and each step forward contributes to or takes away from the seed's quality and stand.

"There are things that happen all through the year and even into the next year, when you pick up that bag of seed, that can affect seed quality," said Scott Monfort, University of Georgia Extension agronomist.

Monfort spoke about peanut seed quality for the annual Alabama Row Crops Short Course organized by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. The course wasn't held in person this time but is available online as a video series.
