Current Situations and Development Strategies for Integration of Peanut Agronomy and Agricultural Machinery in China

The mechanization level of peanut production is the bottleneck restricting the development of peanut production in China, while integration of agronomy and agricultural machinery is an essential approach for improving mechanization level of peanut production. This paper elaborated requirements of peanut agronomy for agricultural machinery from peanut planting modes, land cultivation, sowing, harvesting, picking, and shelling, etc. Besides, it discussed requirements of agricultural machinery for agronomy from peanut seed quality, variety characteristics, planting modes, and soil condition. In addition, it analyzed existing problems and restricting factors of integration of peanut agronomy and agricultural machinery. Finally, it came up with recommendations for development strategies including increasing government fund input, optimizing industrial distribution, and multidisciplinary joint research.
