Results from the fungicide trial suggested that fungicide programs influenced yield and the overall health of the crop throughout the growing season. The Elatus program seemed to provide higher disease control than the two other fungicide programs, resulting in higher yield and lower disease incidence. Harvest date resulted in variations among grade, maturity, peg strength, and disease severity, and 2500 aGDD indicated to be the most suitable for a high yield and low disease incidence. When differences were observed between cultivars, Georgia-06G performed better than Georgia-09B with regards to yield and disease incidence.
In the experiment testing biological products, results indicated that the products did not enhance nutrient utilization or peanut growth. The photosynthetic efficiency of leaves were not impacted by any of the treatments when compared with the untreated control. The use of these products studied in this research did not seem to result in any beneficial effect to peanut plants.
