At-pegging nematicide treatments on peanut are a part of

standard recommendations for management of the peanut root-knot

nematode, Meloidogyne arenaria. Application has generally been

recommended in a 14-18" band at 35-45 days after planting. While

this has been widely accepted for use on peanut cultivars such as

Florunner, little information is available on longer season

cultivars like Southern Runner. This test was conducted to

determine if nematicide treatment later in the season may be more

beneficial for longer season cultivars.

Materials and Methods

A field trial was conducted at the IFAS North Florida Research

and Education Center, Marianna, in a Chipola loamy sand soil

infested with the peanut root-knot nematode, Meloidoqyne arenaria.

The site contained preplant populations of M. arenaria averaging

127/100 cm3 of soil. Before planting, the plot area was prepared

by moldboard plowing and double discing. Plots were 2 rows (36"

wide rows) by 20' long. Treatments were placed in a randomized

complete block design and replicated 6 times.

All materials placed in the test were granular formulations

except the liquid formulation of SM-9. Initial chemical

applications were made at-planting of Southern Runner peanut on May

21, 1993 (Table 1). The granular materials were applied with two

tractor-mounted Gandy applicators in a 12-14" band over the row.

\ An at-planting Thimet treatment was similarly applied and utilized

as the control treatment. Over the top "pegging time" treatments

were applied at 4 different time intervals at the same band width.

The SM-9 was applied in 20 gal. of water/A broadcast and double-

disc incorporated to 3-4" deep.

Peanut plants were observed for symptoms of phytotoxicity over

the season. Soil samples were taken in-row on September 14, and

five soil cores (1" dia.) to 10" deep were taken in each plot and

composite. Nematodes were extracted from soil utilizing the

centrifugation, sugar-flotation technique and quantitated to number

of juveniles/100 cm3 soil.

Peanuts were dug on November 2 and combined on November 8.

In-shell peanuts were force air-dried to 10% moisture, weighed, and

yields converted to Ibs/A. Additionally, peanut pods were rated

for quality on a relative scale of 1-5 where 5 showed the most pods

galled and discolored.

Results and Discussion
Peanut growth was good in all plots, and no phytotoxocity was

observed in any of the treatments. Application of Temik at 84 and

103 days significantly improved yield compared to the other

treatments and the control. Pod quality index was generally best

in the higher yielding treatments and conversely worse in the lower

yielding treatments. Nematode numbers were variable and

corresponded less to peanut yield.

Data from this test may indicate that later applications of

"pegging time" treatments could be useful for longer season

varieties such 'as Southern Runner. A positive effect on pod

quality index may also be a beneficial by-product of later

applications. These data, however, should only be seen as an

indication since populations of nematodes were low and variable in

the plots. Additionally, peanuts were grown under dryland

conditions which could have affected the results in this

experiment. Nevertheless, further tests under more controlled

conditions appear to be warranted from these data.

Influence of "pegging time" nematicide treatment on

.peanut yield, pod quality index and root-knot nematode numbers.
