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...

Peanuts are a subtropical legume crop needing relatively warm growing conditions and 500 to 600 mm of well-distributed rainfall, plus stored soil water, to produce a high-yielding crop... Peanuts can be grown from southern New South Wales to northern Australia... Contrary to popular belief, peanuts do not need red soil...

Put science behind decisions for farm profitability.. Proficient and timely agronomic management is one of the key drivers of crop profitability and there are a myriad of tools available to help growers make informed choices on crop and varietal selection, crop rotation, plant available water capacity and soil/plant nutrition while managing the risks of pests and diseases... The practical tools are complemented by a wealth of statistical data which is continuously gathered, analysed and interpreted through projects like the Statistics for the Australian Grain Industry (SAGI) project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)...

Crop into the future with GRDC Updates.. The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) will raise the bar on crop productivity next month when some of Australia's leading grains researchers visit Moree and Coonamble for the annual GRDC Grain Research Updates to equip growers with practical management advice in areas such as soil nutrition, weed control and grain storage... With crop profitability largely hinging on yield, addressing productivity constraints can make a significant difference to business' bottom lines as well as the long-term sustainability of the farming system...
