Thackerville, Okla., peanut farmer Anthony Reed says his 2015 peanut crop could come in a tad immature but not bad. He’s trying to catch up to a crop that started off 30 days late, and hopes to harvest before fall weather threatens what looks to be a good crop.

Reed, the 2015 Peanut Profitability Award winner for the Southwest Region, says he’s just started digging and will have combines running by the end of the week. “I have one circle dug and am hooking up the combines now,” he said. “That’s why I had to call you back. I couldn’t hear the phone for all the machinery.”
He says with a late crop, “I have to take my lumps,” with potential for some immature peanuts. That’s just part of the process. “I’m pushing a little to get them in. I don’t want to have to go far into November to harvest.”
