ABSTRACT
The article informs that back before peanut farmers took a huge cut in price from the dismantling of the federal program, the Gates, North Carolina, farmer had already started scouting religiously in order to justify expenses. Such is the philosophy of Robbie Umphlett, the Farm Press Peanut Profitability Award winner from the Virginia-Carolina region for 2005. While he doesn't fertilize peanuts directly, Umphlett applies nutrients based on soil tests, plus a certain amount extra, to cotton, the crop previous to peanuts. The peanuts thrive off the residual fertilizer left from the cotton crop.
