Peanut Response to Gypsum and Soil pH Peanut Notes No. 36 2021

— Written By

Question:

Would you even consider planting peanuts here with these pH’s even if we lime now? This was a last-minute land swap.

Jordan Answer:

No. Too low. I think there will be a 30% yield hit for pH 5 and likely a 50% yield hit for pH 4.5 compared with yield at pH 6.
