This project was designed to provide an economic analysis of selected research projects funded by the Southeastern Peanut Research Initiative (SPRI).
Data was obtained from Dr. Porter on the irrigation scheduling of peanuts. We performed an economic analysis that included an analysis of management and equipment costs, net revenue, and water-use efficiency. Outcomes are dependent upon peanut variety, weather patterns, and economic objectives. Irrigator Pro and Sensor Based Systems typically outperformed other methods on all analyses. Presentations with these data have taken place at the Georgia Peanut Farm Show, Georgia Farm Bureau Meeting, Field to Market Meeting, American Peanut Research and Education Society, and Southern Extension Agricultural Economics Meeting.
