2 Hired at UGA as Assistant Professor and Extension Peanut Agronomist in October 1985 Promoted to Associate Professor and granted Tenure July 1991 Appointed to Graduate Faculty in 1991 Promoted to Professor in – 100% Extension appointment – 75% Extension, 25% Research 2006-present – 75% Ext, 15% Res, 10% Inst

3 Provide educational support to UGA County Extension Agents in peanut producing counties in the area of peanut agronomics (75% of program effort) Conduct applied research in the area of peanut agronomics (15%) Provide instruction and instruction support in Crop and Soil Sciences, specifically at the UGA Tifton Campus (10%)

4 Cultivar management interaction with agronomic practices – Eight new runner-type peanut cultivars released since 2006 Pest management interaction with agronomic practices – New cultivars have various combination of pest resistance; alter management strategies Maturity determination of new cultivars – Evaluation of adjusted Growing Degree Day (αGDD) model for peanut

5 Since 2006 there have been 8 new runner-type peanut cultivars released from UGA (5), UF (2), and USDA (1) Four of the eight have significantly larger seed size than the previous standard, ‘Georgia Green’ Georgia Green Georgia-06G

6 Issue #1 – The larger seeded cultivars significantly increase the seed cost per acre – Previous cultivar standard, Georgia Green, was sown at ~ lbs/acre when planted at recommended 6 seed per row-foot – The four large-seeded cultivars are sown at ~ lbs/acre when planted at 6 seed per foot – That extra 30 lbs/acre costs producers about $30/acre more in seed cost – Can we reduce the seeding rate of these large- seeded cultivars?

7 Seeding rate / plant population trials were established in cooperation with Dr. Scott Tubbs – Evaluate seeding rate adjustment on single row, twin row, and 30-inch row patterns

12 Issue #2 – Do the large-seeded cultivars have a higher calcium requirement than medium and small- seeded runner cultivars? Established trials with Dr. Glen Harris and Dr. Timothy Grey to examine calcium requirement, germination response, and vigor

13

14 Yields (lb/a) Calcium (Gypsum) Rate Ponder Farm (Tifton, GA) – 2009 Pegging Zone Ca – 450 lb/a

15 Calcium (ppm) Content and Seed Germination 2009 (5 Locations, n= 184)

16 Multiple temperatures (F) – 57 – 61 – 64 – 68 – 72 Standard germination techniques – 5 mm length Counted for 7 consecutive days

17

18 GA-07W – Plains – 57 F 18 = 64 F

19 Georgia 07-W: 7 day evaluation Lime rate (lb/ac) % germination Temperature (F) Grown at Plain research farm 2011

20 Georgia 07-W: 7 day evaluation Lime rate (lb/ac) % germination Temperature (F) Grown at Plain research farm 2011

21 Results – Three of the four large-seeded cultivars continued to respond to the 500 lbs/acre level recommendation for Ca in “pegging zone”. Georgia-06G continued to gain yield and grade as level increased. – Germination response on thermogradient table indicated our long time recommendation of planting when soil temp reached 65° F should be adjusted to ° F

22 Issue #3 – Maturity determination – improvement of accuracy, development of new tools Cooperative research and verification with Dr. Diane Rowland, University of Florida, and Dr. Wilson Faircloth, USDA-ARS/Syngenta

23 Development of Growing Degree Day model for peanut Evaluate recently released cultivars Evaluate new cultivars’ response to early planting Verify maturity range of cultivars
