High Rates of 2,4-DB to Promote More Pegging Peanut Notes No. 131 2020

— Written By

Question:

Will high rates of 2,4-DB cause peanuts to “lay down” and put on more pegs?

Jordan Answer:

Not that I am aware of. The “sleep” is transient and does not always happen. We have done a lot of work with multiple rates and timings without a negative impact. We have never used high rates, perhaps a 2x rate, but never rally high rates. In those trials we were looking at negative impacts and did not see any. We also did not see a positive impact. It is also off label to use higher rates.
