Jeff Davis Peanut Hull Scrape Clinics Set for 2017

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-06G medium 135-140 runner large
Georgia-09B medium 135-140 high-oleic runner medium
Georgia-12Y* medium to late 140+ runner medium
Georgia-13M* medium to late 140+ high-oleic runner small
Tifguard medium 135-140 runner medium
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

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.
