Abstract Peanut peg strength, which influences the proportion of peanut pods harvested, was measured as a function of the force required either to detach the peg from the pod or to break the peg. Pegs from 10 commercial cultivars and 30 plant introductions were tested for peg strength with an Instron Test Instrument. The mean peg detachment forces for Florunner, Florigiant, Spantex, Tamnut-74, and Toalson varieties were 10.0, 12.7, 13.0, 17.2, and 22.1 Newtons (N), respectively. Peg detachment… Expand
Can Peg Strength Be Used as a Predictor for Pod Maturity and Peanut Yield
Abstract Mesocarp hull color is the current standard to estimate digging date and peanut (Arachis hypogaea, L.) maturity with acceptable yield and grade. Subjectivity of pod color and pod placementExpand
Peanut Peg Strength and Associated Pod Yield and Loss by Cultivar
ABSTRACT Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) peg strength and associated pod yield and digging loss were documented for nine cultivars and two breeding genotypes across three harvest dates (early, mid, andExpand
Effect of Fungicide Treatments, Pod Maturity, and Pod Health on Peanut Peg Strength
TLDR
None of the fungicide treatments had any measurable effect on the peg strength of healthy (disease asymptomatic) pods, but pods symptomatic for tomato spotted wilt had significantly stronger pegs than those of healthy pods. Expand
Consideration of peg strength and disease severity in the decision to harvest peanut in southeastern USA
TLDR
The results show that reduced fungicide program might affect the yield because of the disease severity and that the optimal harvest time should consider the level of the defoliation, although there was no correlation between peg strength and digging loss. Expand
Variable Depth Peanut Digger: Part II - Digging Loss Analysis
A variable depth peanut digger was developed for use in assessing the ability to reduce digging losses as a function of digging blade angle and on-board remote sensing. Soil electrical conductivityExpand
Path-coefficient analysis of anatomical characters affecting peg strength in groundnut
TLDR
Bundle cap length emerged as a reliable anatomical character which can serve as a selection criterion in breeding cultivars with strong pegs to reduce harvesting losses in groundnut. Expand

Importance of Proper Top Link Setting for Peanut Digging Loss Reduction
The digging and inversion process creates the most yield loss during peanut harvest. Even if the grower produces great yield from proper care and management of this crop it can quickly be lost fromExpand
