Thimet Thrips Valor Impact on Peanut

— Written By

Many of you already know what Thimet injury (yellow and brown foliage) looks like on peanut but here is a photo from yesterday if it helps (peanuts planted May 2). There is also some minor thrips injury and most likely some injury from Valor SX. The new growth is the key going forward. Peanut can overcome everything here and yield very well.
