The goal of this project is to enhance the economic and agronomic resilience of beginning peanut farmers.1. As a primary objective, six beginning peanut farmers will receive direct mentoring on Certified Organic production practices from three mentor farmers. This activity will lead directly to improved production practices and enable these beginning farmers to reach new, profitable markets for peanuts.2. A secondary objective of this project is to equip beginning peanut farmers with the knowledge and skills to reduce herbicide use, manage production risk more efficiently, and develop cultural practices to control herbicide-resistance weeds.3. Lastly, the project will develop a pilot mentoring program that can be extended to additional producers and commodities, in partnership with other agricultural organizations, in the future.
