Peanut research trials were conducted to evaluate cultivar response to differing agronomic practices in Georgia. Numerous cultivar trials were conducted to evaluate the yield and grade potential of newly released peanut cultivars compared to the industry standard Georgia-06G. Several trials were planted to evaluate the response of cultivars to row configuration in both conventional tillage/reduced tillage and dryland/irrigated situations. New planter technologies were also evaluated to determine utility in crop growth and yielding potential. Numerous plant growth regulator trials were conducted to determine if reduced rated could be utilized on runner peanuts to help reduce vine growth along with enhancing yield potential. All trials were planted from late April to late May and harvested in September and October.
