Peanut plant pathology and nematology field trials are being conducted in 2015 at the Brewton Agricultural Research Unit (2), the Chilton Regional Research and Extension Center (1), Gulf Coast Research and Extension Center [GCREC] (10), Plant Breeding Unit (2), and Wiregrass Research and Extension Center [WREC] (15). In addition, trials assessing the efficacy ofthrips control treatments on thrips populations, TSW incidence, and peanut yield are being conducted at the Wiregrass Research and Extension Center (2). Date collection has been initiated on the thrips control trials. Sizable differences in insecticide efficacy for protecting peanut from thrips have been observed. Tomato spotted wilt has been observed primarily in Flavorunner 458 but disease incidence does not appear to be treatment-related. Summary reports for 2014 trials listed below at the GCREC, PBU, and WREC have been published or accepted for publication in the e-journal Plant Disease Management Reports. Abstracts summarizing peanut research projects have been submitted for presentation at the Annual Meeting of the American Peanut Research and Education Society and American Phytopathological Society.
