GUIDELINES FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA PEANUT PRODUCTION CONTEST AND 5,000 POUND CLUB

Entries should be sent to Bob Sutter (sutter@aboutpeanuts.com) and David Jordan (david_jordan@ncsu.edu) by January 20 to be eligible.

The peanut production contest involves a combination yield per acre and additional points based on total acreage. The following criteria are currently being used and include an example calculation.

  1. Eligibility: Must produce at least 25 acres of peanuts.
  2. Requirements:
  3. Variety—Any variety can be grown.
  4. Acreage—The entire peanut acreage under production by an individual will be used to determine official yields. The applicant enters the county in which he/she is a resident, regardless of the percentage of peanuts they produce in that county. The county of residence for the entrant must have at least 1,000 acres.
  5. Entry requirement—Official yields will be determined by the county Cooperative Extension Service agent. The contest will require trust that the applicant is accurately providing yield and acreage information.
  6. Point System: An example of point calculations is provided below. The official entry will be from the contestant’s county of residence (Figure 1).

Step 1. Yield—Average yield per acre (net weight) divided by 100

Step 2. Acreage—Points will be accumulated for acreage as follows:

A. 0 – 100 acres 0 points
B. 101 – 200 acres 1 additional point or fraction thereof
C. 201 – 300 acres 1 additional point or fraction thereof
D. 301 – 400 acres 1 additional point or fraction thereof
E. 401 – 500 acres 1 additional point or fraction thereof
F. 501 – 600 acres 1 additional point or fraction thereof
G. 601 or higher No additional points

 

 

 

Sample calculation:

Farmer produces 2,397,407 pounds on 420.2 acres

Average yield = 2,397,407 divided by 420.2 = 5,705.4 pounds per acre

Step 1. 5,705.4/100 = 57.054

Step 2. Acreage

    0 – 100 acres = 0 point
101 – 200 acres = 1 point
201 – 300 acres = 1 point
301 – 400 acres = 1 point
401 – 500 acres = 0.202 point
Total Points = 60.256
