Georgia peanut farmers face volatile yields By Brad Haire

Georgia's peanut harvest is in top gear. Georgia growers planted the fewest acres of peanuts in recent history, and what they planted faced drought, diseases and damaging insects all growing season. Yields will be volatile, from zero in some fields to setting records in others.

In this episode of "In the Field" Brad Haire, news director with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, speaks with John Beasley, peanut agronomist with UGA Cooperative Extension, about a harvest "farmers will be happy to get in the wagons and sold."
