Overall plant stands for the early planting were similar for all three treatments. Valor did show negative effects but was not detrimental to stand establishment. Valor showed adverse effects on peanut diameter in early April plantings. This was also seen in May plantings, but widths improved later in the season. Overall there were no negative effects on yield for any herbicide treatment as compared to the nontreated control. Only delaying the planting date resulted in yield differences. All three treatments from the late May plant date in 2014 showed a significant decrease in yield while all three treatments from the early May plant date in 2015 showed on average an increased yield compared to early and mid-April plantings.
