Herbicide Question Peanut Notes No. 134 2020
I have some pegging peanuts that have some new weeds coming back (pigweed, morningglory, eclipta, sicklepod) and want to try to clean them up as best as possible. I really don’t want to burn them again. Do you have any suggestion other that just Butyrac from this point?
Butyrac will not control this weed complex very well. At least not completely. Cadre would do well but would not get ALS resistant pigweeds and would only suppress eclipta. I would suggest Ultra Blazer plus 2,4-DB plus nonionic surfactant. Peanuts are growing pretty well right now so best to knock these out if you can. The bigger concern for herbicide injury is during pod fill.
Can this be done with a fungicide application?
Should be okay
