Peanut Yields Cut
By Excessive Rain
Production of peanuts for picking
and threshing is now indicated at
281,200,000 pounds on 296,000 acres.
This is about 6 per cent less than the
1945 production of 29(5,400,000 pounds.
The acreage is down 4 per cent from
last , year. Prospective yields on
August 1 were estimated to be 950
pounds per acre, the same as pro
duced last year. The ten-year yield
of 1,174 pounds is 19 per cent more
than this year's, while the currently
estimated production is 5 per cent
below the ten-year (1935-44) average
Droduction. Heavy rains in the pea
nut area have caused considerable
damage. The peanuts are woody and
needing cultivation because wet lana
prevented proper care. This, however,
has not been too serious for the area
as is indicated by yield estimates.
