Research was conducted during 2013 at the Peanut Belt Research Station, the Upper Coastal Plain Research Station, the Border Belt Tobacco Research Station, and at on-farm locations in Johnston, Northampton, and Martin counties to compare a range of production and pest management practices. Experiments included: peanut response to inoculants and nitrogen rates in new and rotated fields; evaluation of planting and digging dates; comparison of thrips management programs; comparison of runner and Virginia market types; determining variety response to Apogee and other plant growth regulators; weed management with non-registered preemergence and postemergence herbicides that are on track for use in peanut; comparison of disease management programs; rotation schemes; and compatibility of pesticides and other products used in peanut. Results from these experiments are provided to Cooperative Extension Service agents, farmers and others in agribusiness.
