Maturity Peanut Notes No. 149 2019

— Written By

I recently had a question about what can be done to push June-planted peanuts along and cause them to reach maturity more quickly. The question was asked in the context of using Apogee and Kudos. I am not aware of anything that will promote earliness in peanuts regardless of planting date except maintaining good plant health and minimizing stress from pests and abiotic factors such as drought and high temperatures. There is no magic bullet that will increase the rate at which peanuts reach optimum maturity. We would be using it already if that was the case.
