The purpose of this project was to find alternatives to aldicarb (i.e., Temik) that equal in their ability to control thrips and result in comparable yields. To do this, we conducted three peanut field trials at our location. Data are included below. Final steps to complete this project included interpreting and summarizing results, which were presented to Growers, Extension Agents, Crop Advisers, and other clientele at the State Peanut Production Meeting in Franklin, VA, on February 2, 2015. Additionally, results from this project were used to update Extension recommendations for peanut in the Field Crops Pest Management Guide, and trial summaries were included in the annual research summary book, Insect Pest Management in Virginia Cotton and Peanut.
