Summer 2020 Crop Update by JR Cudd, TPPB Secretary/ Treasurer

Posted on August 17, 2020

My peanut crops in Gaines, Terry and Dawson Counties have caught a few rains, and temperatures have dropped. Unfortunately, Yoakum County has had very little rainfall. 

While my fields are looking good as a whole, some peanuts are still showing heat stress, even with heavy irrigation.

As far as yielding, 98-99-14 and 09B are proving well under heavy irrigation. With lower temperatures, the last part we need is consistent rainfall.
