Twin-row peanuts provide a weed-management advantage over single rows, according to a University of Florida study. In seven of 10 studies from 2000-2004, Barry Brecke, University of Florida weed scientist, found twin-rows improved weed control from 3 percent to 40 percent for both conventional and strip-till. In regard to yield, twin-rows had higher yields ranging from 6 percent to 35 percent in five of eight studies. Brecke and his colleagues used conventional and strip-till. In his study in northwest Florida, Brecke used Georgia Green and C-99R varieties. Standard herbicide treatments were used in the plots. Brecke looked at sicklepod, common cocklebur, spotted spurge, browntop millet, Florida beggarweed, redweed, southern sida and smallflower morningglory.
