Treflan Use in Peanut
Initial Question from a Consultant:
David, why is Treflan not labeled PPI in peanuts in NC?
Answers from Jordan:
Dow positioned Sonalan for the southeast and V-C area rather than Treflan. I suspect they could charge more. They used to have a product called Balan. I do think Treflan can injure peanuts more than Prowl but have not found a data set that shows that.
Follow up Question from Jordan:
Eric, I am getting a few questions about Treflan use in peanut. Other than Dow pursuing Sonalan rather than Treflan for the V-C and Southeast, is there any reason why it is not labeled? I have assumed that Treflan can injure peanut more than Prowl just based on thoughts that Treflan is more active on some of the larger-seeded broadleaf weeds compared with Prowl. Thanks for any input. David
Answer from Prostko (University of Georgia):
See attached. Something I wrote for our agents a few years back.
Jordan Follow up:
Planting peanut following Treflan is in violation of the Treflan label.
