High input peanut yields generally range from 30 to 50% of genetic potential. Commercial yields of two to five tonnes/hectare are common (industry average < 4t/ha) representing significant yield loss. Past work has identified barriers to change, including lack of application of improved production techniques and varying attitudes to risk management. Trial work to date indicates a number of agronomic factors are responsible for this 'yield gap' including irrigation and disease management, plant population, rotations, weed control and harvest losses. This project extends the wider application of recognised best management practices aiming to lift productivity to average 5.5t/ha on irrigated production.
