Virginia Peanuts: ALERT – Stop Digging Until After Matthew

Although we do not know for sure if keeping peanuts in the ground is better than on the ground during episodes with potential high rainfall amounts, this time I am inclined to advise farmers to not dig any more peanut until after the hurricane Matthew passes.

This is because not just precipitation but also high winds are expected Saturday and Sunday, that may blow the peanuts away and compromise picking.

At least this is what we are going to do at the research station.
