Preface

This research report presents the results of the 2001 statewide performance tests of peanut, cotton and tobacco. The tests for various evaluations were conducted at several or all of the following locations: Bainbridge, Tifton, Plains and Midville in the Coastal Plain region and Athens in the Piedmont region. For identification of the test site locations, consult the map below.

Agronomic information such as plant height, lodging, disease occurrence, etc., is listed along with the yield data. Information concerning planting and harvest dates, soil type, and culture and fertilization practices used in each trial is included in footnotes.

In order to have a broad base of information, a number of varieties, including experimental lines, are included in the trials, but this does not imply that all are recommended for Georgia. Varieties best suited to a specific area or for a particular purpose, and agreed upon by College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences agronomists, are presented in the 2001 Spring Planting Schedule for Georgia (available from your county extension office). Pesticides used for production practices are included for the benefit of the reader and do not imply any endorsement or preferential treatment by the University of Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station. For additional information, contact your local county extension agent or the nearest experiment station.

The least significant difference (LSD) at the 5 or 10 percent levels has been included in the tables to aid in comparing hybrids. If the yields of any two hybrids differ by the LSD value or more, they may be considered different in yield ability.

This report is one of five publications presenting the 2001 performance of agronomic crops in Georgia. For more information concerning other crops, refer to one of the following research reports: 2001 Corn Performance Tests (Report 675); 2000-2001 Small Grains Performance Tests (Report 673); 2000-2001 Canola Performance Tests (Report 674); and 2001 Soyobean, Sorghum Grain and Silage, Grain Millet, and Summer Annual Forages Performance Tests (Report 676).

This report along with performance test information on other crops is also available at our web site: www.swvt.uga.edu.

The Season: 2001 Rainfall

Growing conditions improved during the 2001 crop season, as a more normal rainfall pattern along with cooler temperatures occurred across most of the state. These favorable weather patterns were a much needed relief to Georgia farmers who battled extreme drought conditions the past three years. Although dry weather impeded planting in May, irrigation helped allow a relatively timely planting of the 2001 Georgia crops. As a result of the favorable weather, the status of crops was good to excellent throughout the growing season.

Rainfall at four Georgia test sites is listed below. Although the total seasonal rainfall amounts were below normal at two sites, distribution of rainfall was good and soil moisture during the growing season was more normal than any year since 1997. Weather during the first two months of the year (data not shown) did not improve and a water shortage emergency was declared; therefore, some farmers participated in the program to take payment not to irrigate their crops during the 2001 crop year. Then, most areas in the state received torrential rainfall during March and June.

Georgia farmers continue to reduce planted acres of some row crops. Peanut and tobacco acreage continued to decline as peanut and tobacco producers planted 480,000 and 27,000 acres of each, down 3 percent and 13 percent, respectively. However, number of planted acres in cotton increased to 1.6 million, 7 percent more than in 2000. Georgia farmers continue to search for drought tolerant crops.

The row crops in Georgia were much improved over the drought damaged crops of the past three years. Although there was some damage and increased incidence in disease brought in by Tropical Storm Allison in June, the overall benefit from the torrential rainfall far outweighed any damaging effect. A dry September and extremely dry October and November helped the harvest season to begin early and progress at a rapid rate. This year, the crop yields in Georgia were near record levels. The state average peanut yield for 2001 was estimated at 3,350 pounds per acre, second in recorded history to the year 1984 (record yield, 3,375 lb/acre in 1984). Peanut production increased 20 percent due to a 24 percent increase in average yield over 2000. Average cotton yield this year was estimated at 710 pounds per acre, 24 percent more than last year. Cotton production increased 32 percent over 2000 and was the most cotton produced during one year in Georgia in 87 years (fourth highest on record, higher in 1911, 1913 and 1914). Tobacco per acre yield increased during 2001 to 2,400 lb/acre (third highest on record), but total production was 6 percent less than 2000 due to the decline in planted acres.

1 Price Index based on two-year average (2000-2001) prices for U.S. government grades.
2 Numerical values ranging from 1-99 for flue-cured tobacco based on equivalent government grades - higher the number, higher the grade.

Some varieties are not included because of poor stand in 1999.

Research conducted by Stevan S. LaHue and M. G. Stephenson, under project S1-71 and supported by grants from the Georgia Tobacco Commission.

Conducted on an Ocilla loamy sand soil fertilized with 1000 lb/a of 6-6-18 and 120 lb/a 16-0-0 with plants spaced 20-22 inches apart in 44-inch rows.

1 Price Index based on two-year average (2000-2001) prices for U.S. government grades.
2 Numerical values ranging from 1-99 for flue-cured tobacco based on equivalent government grades - higher the number, higher the grade.

Some varieties are not included because of poor stand in 1999.

Research conducted by Stevan S. LaHue and M. G. Stephenson, under project S1-71 and supported by grants from the Georgia Tobacco Commission.
