The article focuses on the status of peanut crop in Georgia for the year 2004. Peanut crop would not be one of record breaking yields like last year, but it will be a pretty good one, especially considering that much of it was made between hurricanes. It is still too early to tell what changes will be made in the University of Georgia Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus Risk Index based on what bas occurred this year. Some of the best-laid plans, however, have been disrupted this year by weather. Some growers may have had plans to harvest their cotton and then move to peanuts. But the hurricanes have thrown that for a loop. They know that peanuts are more sensitive to the timing of harvest, so they go ahead and harvest the peanuts anyway.
