Again I received news last night of some great results in North Florida involving a peanut trial we are doing.

The farmer has a 15 acre peanut trial as well as a 20 acre cotton trial. On his peanuts: He reduced fertilizer 25 percent and has not reduced his fungicide, pesticide or herbicide regiment. There was a 2–3 inch height difference between the Genesis and the control. It was also mentioned there was a visual difference in foliage and denseness of Genesis applied peanuts (treated on right, untreated on left) These results were outstanding and we are certain we will show this farmer a substantial increase in yield.
