The article discusses the problems in harvesting and marketing of peanut produce. One of the primary obstacles to harvesting peanuts can be heavy rain that delays digging or combining, resulting quickly in reduced yields and quality. Other factors that can affect the bottom line at harvest are digging too early or late and improperly adjusted or maintained equipment. That is why it is important to order fields for harvest by maturities rather than by planting dates. This can be done by using the hull-scrape method or peanut profile maturity test.
