Inoculant and Imidacloprid

I think I remembered that Admire Pro & Lift can be tank mixed. Is that right?


Yes… See page 164, lines 2-8… [2015 Peanut Information]

AND, here is an abstract Rick and I presented at the 8 th National IPM Meeting (well, we sent a poster to the meeting)

Developing strategies to manage thrips in peanut in absence of aldicarb

Tobacco thrips can have a major impact of peanut yield if control measures are not implemented especially in North Carolina where the growing season for peanut is relatively short and injury can delay crop development. With the removal of aldicarb from the peanut market, alternative strategies are needed to protect peanut yield from thrips injury. In small-plot experiments over three years, imidacloprid controlled thrips and protected peanut yield equally or more effective than phorate or acephate applied in the seed furrow at planting. In some instances postemergence applications of acephate were not needed when following imidacloprid but often increased control and yield when following acephate or phorate applied in the seed furrow. Imidacloprid was compatible with Bradyrhizobia applied in the seed furrow at planting as an essential component of biological nitrogen fixation and did not increase incidence of tomato spotted wilt of peanut when the tolerant cultivar Bailey was planted. The current risk index for managing TSWV has been modified to reflect use of imidacloprid in peanut.
