September 24 – Prior to planting, the peanut entries were divided into four maturity groups.  Plots of the earliest maturity group, in both the irrigated and non-irrigated trials at the WGREC, were dug/inverted on September 23.  These plots will be harvested with a research combine in the coming days.
