|The National Peanut Research Laboratory...|
We were established in 1965 to improve farming practices and study the newly detected mycotoxin, aflatoxin.
And we are still involved in all phases of peanut production ...
- peanut breeding and genetics
- irrigation and water conservation
- better harvesting methods
- improved storage procedures
- greater control of aflatoxin
- software development to maximize crop yield and profit
Through the development of expert systems, the farmer can more efficiently produce a high quality crop. With the release of afla-guard?, the economic future looks much better for the peanut industry as well. Advances developed at the NPRL have provided the consumer with a safer, better quality peanut.
The National Peanut Research Laboratory is located in the heart of peanut production for southwest Georgia. Traveling on US 82, we are approximately 20 miles (32 km) NW of Albany, GA and 60 miles (97 km) SE of Columbus, GA on GA 520.
