Research trials show early harvesting (or cutting) can significantly reduce aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns... A number of factors influence the decision on when to cut a peanut crop, including: maturity of the crop peg strength and general crop health; if the crop is highly diseased the grower is advised to cut early to reduce harvest losses weather outlook; hasten or delay cutting if wet weather is imminent risk attitude of grower soil type differences may cause variations in maturity within a block machinery logistics; if a small acreage can be cut or harvested this will spread harvesting over a longer period... DEEDI trials conducted over the trial period of three seasons consistently showed that in years, or situations, where there is a high-aflatoxin risk, early crop cutting can help to minimise aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns...

Once frost damage has been confirmed, there are a number of options for dealing with a frosted crop, each with advantages and disadvantages... Agripartner Consulting livestock consultant Hamish Dickson says that whether cutting hay to use on farm or putting livestock on the crop, the key is aligning the feed quality to the class of stock... The class of stock is also important; cattle are unable to efficiently utilise any grain that may develop in the head of a ripened crop, so there is no benefit to allowing the plant to mature and spray topping will likely be the best decision sheep can utilise the grain well, so when grazing sheep, allowing the crop to ripen can provide a boost in nutrition," Mr Dickson said...
