##
Peanut Yield Estimator

Provide the following inputs to estimate your peanut yield based on
observations of the windrow. Note: This calculator does not account for
reduced weight from pops (un-filled hulls) nor does it account for
combining losses. *Note: The estimate is based on a pod count per foot
of windrow, not per foot of row.*

Yields are estimated by observing the number of pods counted in a given
length of windrow. Virginia type peanuts are estimated here to be an
average weight of 1.8 g per pod and runner type peanuts are estimated
here to be an average weight of 1.2 g/pod. These estimates are based
in part on a
Clemson study conducted in 2015. Your actual pod weights may vary
from the averages we observed, but this calculator should provide
a decent estimate of expected yield.

This same calculator can be used to estimate peanut digging losses
if pod losses are collected from the area representing both rows of
a windrow. Remember that there may be as many or more below ground
losses as there are above ground losses.
