The dry conditions that are affecting parts of Georgia are having a negative effect on the potential yields of dryland peanuts there, according to a news story at While irrigated peanuts are doing well, the dry conditions are putting stress on non-irrigated peanuts, potentially dropping yields. About half the crop is planted in fields without irrigation. Rain in that part of the state is expected to be more than 1.5 inches in the next week, which may improve conditions in the fields even though high temperatures are also increasing evapotranspiration.
