Maturity Progression Question Peanut Notes No. 207 2020

— Written By

Question:

Looking at the extended forecast up here, it looks like we’re in for much cooler nighttime temps (mid-50s to low 60s) and cooler daytime temps (not much over 80 degrees). Do you think we should expect to see much progression in maturity from here forward if this trend continues?

Jordan:

More slowly but don’t rush.

Comment:

I hope we can hold most growers in North Carolina and Virginia to 10/1 at least

Jordan:

Agree. The maturity will progress but slowly. Our rule is high 40s for two nights in a row is hard to overcome. We have dodged this in September and October for the past 3 years.
