Harvest Loss:

Roughly 25% of the peanut crop in the V-C region was dug by about September 23 and much of that stayed in the field until the week of October 12 or later in some cases. We dug peanuts at Whiteville on September 23 and finally harvested them on October 19. Yield potential was about 4,424 lbs/acre with 1,655 lbs/acre dropped from vines in the picking process with 2,769 lbs/acre pounds going in the basket. This is a 37% loss in yield. The vast majority of this was lost in the picking process. Very few pods were lost during digging. The problem is generally digging losses. This year was very unique.
