The article cites 10 essential production practices that help maintain consistent yields and efficient production on White Face Farms by manager Rex Carr. Carr prefers a four-year system with peanuts, cotton and wheat. He says cotton also benefits from having peanuts in the mix. Carr treats Spanish peanuts the way he would runners, following a strong base fertility program with anhydrous ammonia side-dressed. Spanish peanut varieties give Carr a jump-start on the season. Early maturity characteristics allow him to harvest as much as two weeks ahead of runner types.
