Herbicide Burn on Peanuts

Posted by romeethredge on May 23, 2015

With the showers we’ve had the last week and peanuts emerging, we have seen some Valor herbicide burn. This often happens when we get splashing rains as peanuts emerge. Especially apparent if they have not received much rain or irrigation previously to get the chemical in the dirt. It looks bad but peanuts are tough and will quickly grow out of this injury. Sometimes it’s worse around field edges where maybe a higher rate of chemical was applied or the end gun didn’t put out as much water to move it into the soil.
