I have 19 grower surveys but they represent only 4 or 5 counties. If I could get 2 or 3 from your county that would give us something to work with. It is important that they all come from the same year (2011.) I’m not looking for perfection in these. Everyone’s memory is going away at this point…I’ll take an estimate. I will take what I can get but need at least one from each county…but would like 3.
All of the extension meetings that are currently being planned by David Jordan, Barbara Shew and Rick Brandenburg for NC peanut producing counties.
Attached are the rules for the state peanut production contest (also at the county level.) Please use these and have growers fill out the survey. Bob needs your champion (yield per acre, acres and points) at least a week before your production meeting.
Yearly publication prepared by Extension personnel at Virginia Tech for the production of peanut in Virginia. Topics include: agronomic recommendations and procedures; weed, insect, and disease control; irrigation; sprayer information; and production costs.
The North Carolina Agricultural Chemicals Manual provides Extension personnel, researchers, and other professional agricultural workers, dealers, applicators, distributors, formulators, and manufacturers with the most up-to-date information available on the selection, application, and safe and proper use of agricultural chemicals.
Yearly Extension publication prepared by NCSU for the production of peanut in North Carolina. Chapters include: Virginia-Type Peanuts: Situation and Outlook, Peanut Seed, Peanut Production Practices, Weed Management in Peanuts, Peanut Insect and Mite Management, and Peanut Disease Management, Planting, Harvesting, and Curing Peanuts, and Guidlines and Survey Results from the North Carolina Peanut Production Contest.
Peanut is a relatively high-input, high management row crop. But profit is not determined by spending more money or adding one more product to the spray tank that "might help." It is about doing the fundamentals on time and getting the most out of every dollar invested.
This is a guide for making timely peanut management decisions. The intention is to lay out a step-by-step "game plan" for peanut production under South Carolina conditions, and to provide growers, county agents, private consultants, and industry representatives with a reference that will answer most practical questions about peanut production.
This scouting manual will help growers identify peanut pests and determine whether the number of pests is likely to decrease yield and cause profit losses greater than the cost of treatment.

The Virginia Cooperative Extension Pest Management Guide - 2011 Field Crops provides Extension personnel, researchers, and other professional agricultural workers, dealers, applicators, distributors, formulators, and manufacturers with the most up-to-date information available on the selection, application, and safe and proper use of agricultural chemicals.
The Pest Management Handbook is a set of recommendations developed by Clemson University Extension pest management specialists and university researchers for South Carolina growers. These recommendations were derived from various sources of information available to these contributors at times prior to publishing this handbook and represent their current views on managing field crop pests based on pesticide labels, their own research or experience, and/or a number of other sources.
The 2012 Pest Management Handbook is available here. The chapters pertaining to pest control in peanut are here.
