Modem agriculture is being asked to increase crop productivity while promoting environmental quality and sustainability. Peanut production in the Southeast is no different despite being grown on soils that are naturally low in productivity, which can be worsened by tillage. The results of this experiment will help identify the most effective type of strip tillage operation that facilitates planting peanut in single and twin-rows, while maintaining beneficial residue on the soil surface. This is very important to promote soil quality within peanut production and not destroy conservation benefits associated with crops grown in rotation with peanut that use conservation systems. Previous research have shown that tillage responses for peanut have been quite variable although there have been greater yields in conventional tillage with newer cultivars in recent years.
