Crop, Forage & Turfgrass Management Research Highlights

Potential for Growing Winter Wheat In Southeast Peanut Systems


Peanut (Arachis hypogaea) production in U.S. is concentrated in the Southeast, with Georgia being the largest producer. Peanut is typically rotated with cotton (Gossypium spp.) and corn (Zea mays), and it is common for producers to leave fields fallow in the winter. Scott Tubbs, an Associate Professor at the University of Georgia, is interested in ways peanut farmers can improve their land use practices and saw an opportunity to generate revenue on those fallow fields by implementing a multiple-cropping system.
