Funding of this project has permitted a more aggressive insecticide evaluation program and provide the data necessary to make major revisions to the insect control sections for peanut production. The most notable changes are under "thrips management" and the various caterpillars control sections. These changes provide growers with the current results of trials and cost effective recommendations given the loss of standard products and the changing situation for caterpillar control. Field data was necessary to confidently make these revisions and additional field studies are required to further refine our recommendations and revise additional sections based on new varieties used in the field. We are also in the process of establishing a peanut insect control site on the extension portal.
