United States peanuts are known throughout the world for their high quality. This quality is not solely due to farmers’ performance, but as well due to performance of the shellers and manufacturers. Achieving quality, therefore, depends on cooperation and achieving high standards in each step. Peanut quality is a major concern in all phases of the peanut industry from production to manufacturing. Improper curing can significantly reduce quality, and result in significant losses to both farmers and peanut processors. Drying is a key step in post-harvest processing. The objective of this paper is to develop a proper drying region for west Texas climate.
