Fungal diseases as well as viral (Tomato Spotted Wilt) 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 continued information about strategy efficacy and utility 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. Disease resistant cultivars and fungicide spray frequencies have been found to affect losses from 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 and fungicide timing have on disease development and yield and used to evaluate Peanut Rx indices.
