Research work related to this project was initiated at both the Mississippi State University North Farm in Starkville, MS and at the South Mississippi Branch Experiment Station in Poplarville, MS. The initial planting date at North Farm was May 7. Subsequent planting dates were May 20, May 27, and June 3. Another date was targeted for May 13-14 but was prevented by adverse weather conditions. At each planting date, both Georgia-OGG and Georgia-09B were seeded in both twin rows and single rows. All seed was treated with Dynasty fungicide seed treatment. Vault liquid inoculant was placed in furrow to ensure proper inoculation, as much of the field that these plots were planted in had never been in peanuts. Plots were two rows wide and 35 feet long. Prowl and Dual herbicides were applied prior to planting. Emergent stand counts were taken upon full emergence of each plot and days to canopy closure were monitored throughout the season. Postemergence herbicide applications included Cadre (4 oz/A) and crop oil (32 oz/A) on June 9; and Basagran (32 oz/A), Select (16 oz/A) and crop oil (32 oz/A) on June 20. Disease pressure was very low throughout the season.
