Research plots were established in fall 2016 at the Wiregrass Research and
Extension Center. This is the third year of this test conducted at Headland, which is in
conjunction with an identical test located in Tifton, GA.
At this time, we are in the process of finalizing results for the year; however,
peanut yields ( 10% moisture) were good across the test. Cover crop had no effect on
peanut yields (Pr> F = 0.3405). No differences were observed among tillage systems for peanut yields (Pr> F = 0.2909; Fig. 1. ). Peanut grades were also good across the test and averaged 76.7, but neither cover crop (Pr> F = 0.2192) nor tillage system (Pr> F =
0.8044) had an effect.
