In-Furrow Question

— Written By

Question:

We are inoculating in furrow this year. Any suggestions or recommendations for starters, insecticides, or snake oils you like?

Answer:

Take a look at our compatibility chapter in 2015 Peanut Information for more details but less is generally better in-furrow. Outside of insecticide (Admire Pro or generic imidacloprid and perhaps Orthene) and inoculant you don’t need anything. Proline can suppress CBR but most folks don’t have enough CBR to worry about. Bailey and a good rotation are enough. I would not put in a starter fertilizer or growth enhancer.
