Quantum Growth® Increases Peanut Yield By 45%

Location: Sunbelt Expo Research Farm, Moultrie, GA
Objective: Demonstrate the beneficial effects of Quantum-Peanod and Quantum Peanod IF on peanut plants.
Results Achieved: Use of Quantum Growth had a significant impact on the peanut plants. The plants showed an increase in yield of 45%, resulting in an increase in profit of 69%.

The Experiment

The trial had 2 different 20 ft² test plots. The control plot used only the grower’s best practices. The treated plot used Quantum-Peanod IF (in furrow) at planting. Every two weeks after planting, the treated plot received foliar applications of Quantum-Peanod.

45.5% increase in yield. Assuming no other costs were incurred, the net benefit is an additional 69% in profit.

The size of the peanuts in the treated sample is greater in size then the control sample. Also note not only the greater root mass but also denser nodulation on the treated sample.
