"An automated peanut digger developed by Clemson University agricultural engineers could save growers $19 per acre or more by reducing yield losses due to inaccurate digging depths, research shows. The technology utilizes depth gauges that are used to automate the digger’s hydraulic top link that controls blade depth. Doing so maintains a steady digging depth throughout a field regardless of soil texture or moisture, a unique and important feature for the variable clay and sandy soils in the Southeast."
