I will be holding Peanut Hull Scrape Clinics at Davis Farm & Garden on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. until noon beginning on August 22nd. There will be NO hull scrape clinic on August 29th or September 5th. If your peanuts are 110 to 120 days old, it is a good time to see where they stand. To help with determining maturity, a list of currently grown varieties in Georgia is below. Actual maturity is dependent on season long environmental conditions.
|Variety||Maturity||Day Range||Type||Seed Size|
|Georgia-12Y*||medium to late||140+||runner||medium|
|Georgia-13M*||medium to late||140+||high-oleic runner||small|
|TUFRunner 297||medium to medium late||135-145||high-oleic runner||extra large|
|TUFRunner 511||medium to medium late||135-145||high-oleic runner||large|
|TUFRunner 727||medium to late||140+||high-oleic runner||medium large|
|FloRun TM 107||medium||135-140||high-oleic runner||medium large|

Letters went out to all peanut growers on Friday with details on pulling a good peanut sample.
You can also visit PeanutFarm.org and enter a few of your fields to see where they are on growing degree days. Peanuts mature between 2400 and 2500 GDD’s.
