Digging peanuts depends on timing

 

Jonathan Croft: This season the fields have not matured out as they normally would. We have had to go field by field to determine the correct digging time. By delaying peanut harvest, we have been able to increase the yield and the grade of peanuts for J & C Farms in 2011. And, having that higher grade this year has brought them a higher value to that crop.

Bert Judy: Jonathan has done an excellent job for the farmers in this area in determining peanut maturity. It has really helped us make more money by digging our peanuts at the right time.
