In 1989, an informal group of extension and experiment station
scientists from Alabama, Florida, and Georgia met in Headland,
Alabama. The meeting was led by Director Gale Buchanan of the
Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station. The purpose of this
meeting was to compare soil test methodology, calibration, and
fertilizer recommendations for peanuts on Coastal Plain soils
common to all three states where runner-type peanuts are grown
and to review pertinent research projects on peanut fertility.
There was some concern that soil analyses, calibration, interpretation,
and recommendations changed at state lines for peanuts on very
similar soils and that current research results had not been
utilized in soil testing programs for peanuts on Coastal Plain
soils. As a result of this groups efforts, a subcommittee
of SERA-IEG-6 (formerly SRIEG-18), Soil Testing and Peanut
Fertility, was established. Gary Gascho (GA) was appointed
chairman of this subcommittee.
