Management of Early Leaf Spot of Peanut as Affected by Fungicide and Date of Spray Program Initiation

A. K. Culbreath, R. C. Kemerait, Jr., and T. B. Brenneman

February 2006


Fungicide programs for control of early leaf spot of peanut in Georgia typically consist of a full-season program that includes seven applications made on 14-day intervals. Field tests were conducted to compare full-season and reduced programs. Reduced programs of pyraclostrobin resulted in final levels of leaf spot that were similar to or lower than those in plots receiving a full-season program with chlorothalonil. Yields of reduced programs with pyraclostrobin were similar to those of full programs of either chlorothalonil or pyraclostrobin.
