Studies to evaluate the impact of S. festinus feeding on peanut were conducted in the field and greenhouse over two years at the Tifton and Athens Campuses of the University of Georgia. The activities reported in this objective were funded by both USDA NIFA and The National Peanut Board. USDA funds were primarily used to fund the graduate assistantship while NPB funds were used for supplies and to pay temporary hourly workers.
