Florida Peanut Federation Sponsors Peanut Collapse Peanut Decline Research Study

Florida Peanut Federation Sponsors Peanut Collapse Peanut Decline Research Study

In 2017, peanut growers of the Panhandle and North Central regions in Florida, and many areas in Georgia faced a number of issues. In addition to high disease, insect pests, nematodes, and Hurricane Irma’s aftermath, growers were faced with a new problem: peanut collapse or decline.

The Peanut Decline Research Team encourages growers to report appearance of possible decline.  If you suspect peanut decline may be an issue in one or more of your fields, contact yourlocal county agent or De Broughton, Suwannee County Extension, who is coordinating this effort in Florida.
