The need for micronutrients not normally recommended for peanut, such as nickel, copper and now molybdenum continues to be a question presented to peanut growers in Georgia. In theory, a case for the need for these micronutrients can be made. However, results from this study as well as others in the past continue to indicate that under normal growing conditions across a number of soil types, the addition of micronutrients such as nickel, copper and molybdenum do not increase peanut yield or grade. Therefore, adding these unnecessary nutrients to a standard fertility program for peanut could only hurt the "bottom line" of a growers production budget.
