Peanuts: Organic Production


This publication notes that people interested in growing peanuts and experienced peanut growers considering a switch to organic production may find a high demand for organic peanuts and enjoy premiums over traditionally grown peanuts. However, labor and management costs can be much higher for organic peanuts than conventionally grown peanuts. In place of off-farm inputs, organic peanut farmers can use intensive management, maintain high soil fertility, manage weeds through hand hoeing and specialized equipment, and manage insects with alternative strategies.
