According to a recent article by Brad Haire in Southeast Farm Progress, Georgia’s peanut crop this year has been heavily affected by the impacts of the weather. Spring planting and germination was delayed by cool, wet weather, and so this year’s crop is running later than usual. The weather also appears to be affecting the presence of tomato spotted wilt virus, which can affect yields. But Scott Monfort, UGA’s peanut specialist, still thinks we have a potentially good crop this year, although the harvest may be a bit later than usual.
