Due to rapid urban development in Georgia, demand for water has dramatically soared and competition for water availability between the rural and urban sectors has been on the rise with water restrictions looming on the horizon. Furthermore, an increase in the frequency of both water stress and drought associated with climate variability further compound the problem. Thus, it is increasingly critical to improve water-use efficiency (WUE) while maintaining high peanut yields through different management practices. The goal of this project is to indicate how single-row and twin-row planting patterns affect peanut net CO2 exchange, evapotranspiration, water-use efficiency and yield at the field scale.
