Question of the Week – Loggerhead Musk Turtle

Posted by romeethredge on October 1, 2011


Last week’s turtle found in Spring Creek was a Loggerhead Musk turtle. Thanks to Marilyn Fowler for ID help.

This week I want to know what’s wrong in this irrigated peanut field? This was in bermudagrass for 14 years and this is the first year of peanuts in there although there were peanuts grown here in the past. What is causing this area in the field?

    Looks like a potassium or phosphorus deficiency. Lack of these two elements due to harvesting of hay and not putting back enough potassium of phosphous. Mike Casey

    Looks like a possible Magnesium deficiency.
