Randolph County, Georgia-based Jason Sauls and Gaines County, Texas-based Jimbo Grissom, 2004 winners of the Farm Peanut Profitability Award, outlined some of the challenges they faced to earn the honor as they fielded questions following an awards breakfast, part of the Southern Peanut Growers Conference held recently in Panama City, Florida. North Carolina winner Joe Ward was unable to attend the meeting. The most telling difference between the two production systems was in disease control. "We get on a 12 to 14-day schedule for leafspot control," Sauls said. "And we also have to treat for white mold and rhizoctonia." About 60 days after planting, Sauls looks for white mold pressure and determines if treatment is necessary. "We probably apply fungicides seven or eight times during the season," he said.
