New Peanut Herbicide

Posted by romeethredge on February 22, 2014

Warrant recently received both federal and state approvals for use on peanuts in Georgia. Here are a few of Dr. Eric Prostko’s, UGA Extension weed Scientist, thoughts regarding its potential use in 2014:

1) The current supplemental label only permits PRE and/or EPOST applications (before flowering).

2) Of these 2 timings, he would prefer to see EPOST applications of Warrant tank-mixed with Gramoxone + Storm + NIS.

3) At this point in time, Dr. Prostko has NOT observed any real differences in weed control between Dual Magnum and Warrant based peanut weed control programs . However, there is some data that suggests that Warrant might be a better choice for non-irrigated fields.
