Dan Anco Clemson Comments Peanut Notes No. 155 2020

— Written By
Things have been on the fairly quiet side across the state for peanuts. Attached are a few recent pictures. For hopperburn, the standard treatment threshold is 15 to 20% of the field being affected before considering an insecticide application. With as hot as it has been, I would err on the side of caution here in most cases to avoid risking the insecticide application flaring spider mites. Fungicides for white mold and leaf spot remain critical.
Clemson University has decided to cancel the in-person peanut/row crop field day this year (others included). Details regarding an electronic format to be forthcoming.
