Comparative Response of Three Peanut Cultivars To Multiple Herbicide Applications¹

Authors: , ,


Field studies in 1990 and 1991 at Tifton, GA and Gainesville, FL evaluated the response of Florunner, Southern Runner, and NC 7 peanut to multiple herbicide applications. A split-split plot experimental design was used with peanut cultivars as main plots. Sub-plots were four levels of chloroacetamide herbicides applied sequentially preplant incorporated and at vegetative emergence. Sub-subplots were five postemergence herbicide treatments. All herbicides were applied at registered rates and times of application. There were no interactions between cultivars, choloracetamide, andor postemergence herbicides for canopy width, yield, and grade of peanut. There were no interactions between chloroacetamide and postemergence herbicides for the same parameters. Main effects were the only sources of significant (P = 0.05) differences in the data. Based on these results, unusual precautions in using these herbicide combinations on these cultivars are not needed.
