Tuesday, September 30

We are hosting another Peanut Pod Blasting Clinic opportunity on Wednesday, October 1. Clinic will run from 10 a.m. – noon at David Matthews (Shop), 260 Billy Matthews Lane, Turkey NC.

If you have peanuts you would like evaluated for maturity, please feel free to participate. Please remember pod blasting results are only as good as the field sample. 150 harvestable pods (a volume of approximately 2 quarts) are needed for each field sample. Ideally, choose 4 representative locations within a field. Dig 1-2 plants at each location. From total plants secured, select the most representative plants that will total at least 150 harvestable pods. Remove all harvestable pods from the representative plants. If pods will dry prior to pod blasting, place the pods in water. Water will maintain outer pod moisture and speed the pod blasting process.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (Della King 910-260-0176).
