University of Georgia Peanut Project

The University of Georgia Extension Agricultural Water Efficiency Team is focused on enhancing the irrigation efficiency of growers in southern Georgia. This is designed to be achieved through the adoption of advanced irrigation scheduling methods. The supply chain.recognizes that water stress is a significant challenge facing our world and has created goals focused on aligning environmental impacts with science-based research to address water stewardship. This Project is designed to document the sustainability impact of peanut farmer adoption of advanced irrigation scheduling methods and to assist in credibly meeting its water stewardship goals.


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.
