November 2002

Management Recommendation(s)

Management of the common peanut root-knot nematode has traditionally relied on treatment of infested fields with nematicides, as well as rotations with other crops. The availability of nematode-resistant cultivars gives growers another option and will reduce the growers reliance on nematicides. The nematode-resistant peanut cultivars COAN and NemaTAM can be grown in nematode infested fields without having to rely on nematicide applications to achieve the genetic yield potential of the crop.
