Peanuts starting to Bloom

Posted by romeethredge on May 23, 2015

Some of our oldest peanuts are blooming. They are over a month old now. They had some thrips chewing or as my entomology professor would say “rasping and sucking”,  earlier but they have recovered nicely and started to grow a nice plant. One month down and less than 4 months to go until digging time.  Protectant fungicides are going out now to keep them growing well.
