1This research was supported in part by grants from the Texas Peanut Producers Board.
Five runner peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) cultivars were treated with four dinitroaniline herbicide treatments or a postemergence herbicide treatment to determine the effect on pod yield and grade, percentage sound mature kernels + sound splits (SMK+SS). No yield differences due to the dinitroaniline herbicide treatments were noted in the three year study. Southern Runner and GK-7 were higher in yield in one of the three test years, however, no cultivar yield differences were noted in the other two years. Grades were lower with pendimethalin in the three years; grades of trifluralin, ethalfluralin and benefin-treated peanuts were variable from year to year.
