To evaluate thrips, disease, and nematode management products in university trials under multiple growing conditions for a second year, and to provide peanut growers with suitable recommendations for their use.
In 2017, 'Sullivan' peanut was planted on May 3 (Test 1), May 10 (Test 2), and May 18 (Test 3) using 36-inch row spacing at the locations mentioned above. Seed was treated with Dynasty PD. A randomized complete block experimental design was used with 5, 4, and 6 replicates in Tests 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Plots were 4 rows wide by 35-ft long. The liquid in-furrow treatment were applied into the seed furrow at planting at 5 gpa using a microtube mounted between the disc openers, pressurized by CO2 at 9 psi. At-pegging applications were broadcast on July 12-13
