ABSTRACT
The article discusses how Michael Taylor and his father, Mike, added diversity in their Long Lake Plantation farm in Helena, Arkansas by planting peanuts. The Taylors first added peanut crop in 2011, planting 500 acres. For 2012, peanut planting was increased to 900 acres. Taylor explains that they have to select the fields where the peanuts will be planted because the crop performs better in sandier soils.
