The article profiles farmer Joe White from Oklahoma who proves that peanuts continue to be the most reproducible crop in the diversified strategy for crop rotation. It states that promising crop expectations for peanuts counted on dry conditions for final harvest during much of the Southwest Peanut Belt in October. It also notes that the rainy weather from late September to most of the days in October held up the harvest of peanuts and cotton maturity for much of the Southwest.
