Insecticide development in peanuts has been very limited the past ten years despite a growing need for new products for pest control. Peanut growers have faced the loss of key insecticides, the emergence of insecticide resistance, a transition to new peanut-producing areas, and the development of new pests but have not been provided with new options for insect suppression. Currently, there are very specific needs for further insecticide evaluations to help farmers make cost effective decisions regarding insecticide use in North Carolina peanuts. This project ensures the consistency of the peanut insect control program. 
This project provided increased evaluation of recently-developed products and product use beyond what the agrichemical industry has been willing to support the past ten years. Funding from this project is combined with the limited agrichemical industry funding, funding from USAID, and funding from the USDA Crop Protection and Pest Management Program.
