This is the final report for the 2017 SPRI/NPB project "Peanut water-use efficiency influenced by different planting patterns". The three-year study aims to determine the impact of single and twin-row planting patterns on water-use efficiency, yield, pod size and weight, and pod number per plant at the field scale.
The experiment was conducted at the Southwest Research and Education Center in Plains, GA, in 2017. Peanut were planted using single- and twin-row planting patterns in two quasi-flat 10-acre fields. Adjacent fields were selected to avoid any disparity in results due to different soil properties. UGA's recommendation is being used for application of fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
