The lack of reliable options for managment of Verticillium wilt warrants evaluation of tactics that may negatively impact V. dahliae and/or reduce damage caused by Verticillium wilt. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the impact of chloropicrin and metam sodium on soil populations of V. dahliae and to determine the effects of these fumigants on disease development, and peanut yield and grade.
