It’s the time of year when peanut farmers are making plans for the new growing season. There are several decisions to be made between now and planting time.
The researchers who work for the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Auburn University College of Agriculture are ready to share their research-based recommendations to help Alabama peanut farmers have a successful 2022 peanut year. The Alabama Peanut Producers Association is hosting eight grower production meetings around the state during the week of Feb. 21.
The topics will include disease control, herbicide control, insect control and peanut markets outlook. In addition, growers will hear the results of peanut variety and production trials performed around the state. Make plans to attend the one closest to you. A meal will be served at each meeting.
