Tomato spotted wilt virus and fungal disease are significant profit-limiting components for peanut production in Florida and the southeastern U.S. Current management strategies can be effective for most diseases, but improved strategies and continued disease monitoring is needed for optimal peanut production. The integration of cultural and chemical disease management strategies is critical for determining optimal pathogen management system for producers. Di??ease resistant cultivars, seeding rates and fungicide spray frequencies have been found to affect losses {Tom tomato spotted wilt, early leaf spot, late leaf spot and stem rot/white mold (Sclerotium rolfsii). Results from this study indicate the importance of cultivar selection in determining chemical management strategies. The data from this research will be combined with previous years to examine the effects cultivar, seeding rate and fungicide timing have on disease development and yield.
