Peanut (4221 words)
Peanuts are consumed chiefly as roasted seeds or peanut butter in the United States compared to use as oil elsewhere in the world.
The peanut crop matures after 7 to 9 weeks in the soil, which is indicated by maximum levels of protein, oil, dry matter, and presence of darkened veining and brown splotching inside the pod.
Peanut responds well to residual soil fertility from previous crops in the rotation, but usually has a low response to fertilizer in soils with medium to high fertility levels.
