Research work related to this project was initiated at the Mississippi State University North Farm in Starkville, MS in 2014. Georgia-OGG peanut was seeded on May 8 in 38 inch single rows. Plots are six rows wide and 35 feet long. The decision to use six-row plots was made to attempt to eliminate any edge effects associated with smaller plots and to negate any slight shifts in exact plot locations from year to year. Seed was treated with Dynasty fungicide and Vault liquid inoculant was placed in furrow to ensure proper inoculation. Upon emergence, stand counts were taken on all plots. The decision was made to leave all non-peanut plots fallow in order to make the time between peanut crops the ultimate determining factor on yield, disease incidence, and quality in the final year of the study.
