Research

Extended calendar application intervals and the AU-Pnuts leaf spot advisory in southwest Alabama were compared with the recommended 2-week calendar schedule for peanut disease control on partially disease-resistant peanut cultivars. Results indicate that recommendations for the 2-week fungicide application schedule should be maintained in this area. Fungicide program also had a consistent effect on measured variables, with the azoxystrobin program providing better disease control and higher yields.
