PEANUTS ARE a major farm income producer in several southeastern Alabama counties. The crop has been grown for many years under some sort of production allotment system regulated by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This system has resulted in a nearly constant acreage of planted peanuts not only for the years covered in this report, table 1, but also for the last 3 decades. Farmers have tried to offset constant acreage with higher per acre yields by using improved varieties and better management practices. Except when severe weather conditions were limiting, average peanut yields in Alabama have continued to climb during the last 25 years. The continued increase in yields is attributed to improved varieties, better control of certain diseases and insects, improved digging and harvesting machinery, and improved soil management practices
