Research

In the southeastern United States, there are limited options for crops that can be grown in rotation with peanut. Pearl millet has potential as a grain crop, and some hybrids have shown resistance to the peanut root-knot nematode, the primary nematode pest of peanut in this region. The objective of this study was to determine whether pearl millet reduces M. arenaria when planted in rotation with peanut.
