UGA and APC Peanut Sustainability Project

The University of Georgia along with the American Peanut Council have recognized the need to address the desire of consumers for more information and need for broader views of sustainability. Thus, we are committed to investigating the practices of producers around the nation to create baselines for comparisons in efficiency, profitability, and sustainability in peanut production.


Engagement Targets

Notes: (1) I Minor fluctuations in the number of retained growers is expected from year to year. These fluctuations may be due to year-over-year crop rotation effects or other factors beyond the control of the project. Enrolled acres represent the total number of acres on an individual farm in a specific year. The ability to report enrolled acres is based on the Fieldprint Project Standard requirement that individual growers enrolled in projects enter at least 10% of the acres managed for a specific crop. (2) Entered acres represent the actual number of enrolled acres for which data is entered in the Fieldprint Platform for analysis.


Develop a thorough baseline of Field to Market Fieldprint analyzes for peanut production sustainability in several peanut-producing states in the U.S.

Have met with and entered in all information from peanut growers in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.
