Paraquat Certification Requirement Peanut Notes No. 15 2020
Paraquat is an important herbicide for weed control in peanut as a preplant burndown and application prior to peanut emergence and during the first 28 days after peanut emergence. The rate varies depending on whether or not peanuts have emerged. Paraquat is an important herbicide-resistance tool for peanut due to presence of resistance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides and the potential for evolved resistance to PPO-inhibiting herbicides. There is a new requirement for those applying paraquat. See the link below for more details.
