An experiment was conducted to determine the potential for fluometuron to carry over to peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.). Fluometuron was applied preemergence to cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) at 1.12 and 2.24 kg ai ha-1 as a broadcast spray or as a 30-cm band in 91-cm rows. Each preemergence application was followed by zero, one, or two postemergence-directed applications of fluometuron at 1.12 kg ha-1 plus MSMA at 2.24 kg ae ha-1 in a 30-cm band. Herbicide treatments did not adversely affect cotton yield or fiber quality. Fluometuron injury was not observed on peanut planted the following year. Peanut yield, grade, and value were not affected by previous fluometuron treatments.
