Peanut Harvest Update

BostonPeanutCompany (2)

Much of our peanut crop has been dug and harvested at this point. I stopped by the buying point in Boston last week. Here are some peanuts ready to be graded. As expected, many growers had to wait for wagons at the beginning of harvest. Some peanuts stayed in the field up to 18 days. This caused some damage to pods and hurt grades some. There were some seg 2 peanuts resulting from burrower bug damage as well. Reports for burrower bug damage are overall not bad, and were more early on. As of now, grades are hanging around in the mid 70s and yields are okay.
