Peanuts utilise nitrogen from the nodules formed on the roots for the growth.This year I gave a creful look at the nodules to fond relation between # of Nitrogen nodules and the peanut pods.It is my general boservation that # of pods produced are more for the plant having more Nitrogen nodules on the roots.Plants under observation were of the same age.

RE: Peanuts and Nitrogen nodules

Bigger plants tend to have larger root systems and therefore more nodules. The larger a plant is, the more peanuts it can support. Peanuts vary significantly from plant to plant based on disease load, environment, etc.
