Peanut crop may reach 4,000 pounds pedr acre

Special to SEGAZINE

Georgia’s peanut crop this year may not compare to 2012, but it’s still proving to be a good year. Some 430,000 acres were grown at what University of Georgia experts predict to be close to 4,000 pounds per acre.

“My guess is the price situation will be near the same next year as it was this year,” said Nathan Smith, a UGA Extension agricultural economist based on the Tifton campus. “We’re looking at another good peanut production year in 2013.”
