The 2010 Georgia Peanut Tour stopped at the National Peanut Research Lab in Dawson, Ga. Established in 1965, the lab focuses on and improving farm practices such as better planting and irrigation practices, better harvesting and storage methods, and better control over aflotoxin. While touring the research center tour attendees learned more about determining maturity of peanuts by using growing degree days and irrigator pro to schedule irrigation. Wilson Faircloth, research agronomist with the lab, explains more in the video below.
