Peanut production in Oklahoma started in the 1930s and early 1940s in response to the need for oil during World War II. In 1940, there were 82,000 acres of peanuts planted. The high mark for plantings came seven years later when Oklahoma farmers planted 325,000 acres of peanuts. Today peanuts are grown on approximately 22,000 acres in more than 12 of the state’s 77 counties. While relatively small in acreage, peanuts are an important crop in Oklahoma's agricultural economy, worth about $19 million. Peanut producers are faced with many pest challenges, but fortunately, IPM programs are flexible enough to meet those challenges.
