Spraying Peanuts

Posted by romeethredge on August 30, 2013

Peanut fungicides have gone onto many fields by air for a lot of this season. I’m thankful that we have the aerial applicators.

Here’s a field being sprayed for leafspot, whitemold and rhizoc.  I was in a small dryland field last week that had not been sprayed well and the leaves were coming off of it and they will have to dig those peanuts early.


If you are 2 weeks or more from digging and it’s been 10 to 14 days since your last spray, then another protective spray will be needed. Leafspot and peanut rust have been a problem as well as the soilborne diseases..  I’ve done a few peanut maturity tests this week and most Ga 06G’s are going 145 to 155 days, some are going longer.
