Late Leafspot

Posted by romeethredge on September 3, 2015

Late leafspot is jumping on peanuts in a bad way. I shouldn’t say jumping because it has likely been slowly building. Some folks have gotten behind on their spray schedules and with lots of watering and some cloudy, rainy weather that some folks have had, and certain varieties are more susceptible as well.  Our vines have been very deep and that creates a good environment for disease in some cases. This disease can cause the leaves to fall off prematurely.  If you need another protectant spray then it will pay to get it on peanuts quickly if you are seeing some of this.

Here’s some photos I took today of late leafspot, the sporulation is on the leaf backs.
