GA Agronomist Provides Timely Insights for Peanut Growers
Peanut field in Colquitt, GA.
Clint Thompson interviewed Wilson Faircloth, Syngenta agronomy service representative, on Southeast AgNet Radio Network about the importance of timeliness for peanut producers managing diseases.
Here is a summary of the interview:
- As rain continues to saturate fields, growers need to stay vigilant and be ready with fungicide sprays, especially as harvest time approaches.
- White mold and leaf spot are in some fields. Keep looking for diseases and select the appropriate management products.
- Southeast growers are concerned about potential extended dry periods this fall, especially for dryland fields with shallow rooted crops.
Miravis® fungicide provides up to 28 days of disease control between applications, which is double the spray interval of competitor products. Miravis sets a new standard for residual control, helping growers deal with complicated weather patterns and achieve maximum yield potential.
