Paraquat Application Under Hot and Dry Conditions Peanut Notes No. 74 2021

— Written By

Question:

With the prospects of better rainfall this week, I am concerned with the proper handling of Gramoxone in a peanut spray program. How should we change our programs during times of drought and 90 degree temps?

Jordan:

Avoid the hottest time of the day but the weeds will not stop coming. Make sure Basagran is included and make sure thrips injury is minor. The peanuts should recover from any burn.
