The data indicate that for the predominant cultivar, Georgia-06G, the adjusted growing degree days target of 2500 is right on target for maximizing yield. The April planting date seemed to trigger a continual increase in yield even after reaching 2500 aGDD's. When planting as late as May 20, the aGDD accumulation wanes at 2600 level indicating it was getting too cool to mature the crop when planting that late.
