ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the problems with bigger peanut acreage. For a variety of reasons, peanut acreage has increased in the Southeast, with Georgia growers planning about a 20-percent boost, from 550,000 acres to more than 700,000. Many growers who are planting peanuts in a field for the first time want to know if they can "get away" with planting peanuts back to back but numerous research trials have shown a definite advantage to rotating between peanut crops. As one continue to have peanut crop in the field, the severity of soil-borne and leaf spot diseases increases.
