At-pegging nematicide treatment on peanut is a standard recommendation for

management of the peanut root-knot nematode, Meloidogvne arenaria. Application has

generally been recommended in a 14" band at 28-35 days after planting. While this has

been widely accepted for use in peanut cultivars such as Florunner, little information is

available on longer season cultivars such as Southern Runner. This test, in its third

year, was conducted to determine if nematicide treatment later in the season may be

more beneficial in longer season cultivars.

Materials and Methods

A field trial was conducted on the John King Farm near Greenwood, Florida in

the Chipola sandy loam soil infested with the peanut root-knot nematode, Meloidogvne

arenaria. The site was previously in clean fallow in 1994. Before planting, the plot

area was prepared by moldboard plowing and discing. Plots were 2 rows (36" wide

rows) X 20' long. Treatments were placed in a randomized complete block design and

replicated 6 times.

All materials in the test were granular formulations, and initial chemical

applications were made at-planting of peanut Southern Runner on May 19, 1994 (Table

1). The granular nematicides were applied with two tractor-mounted Gandy applicators

as a modified in-furrow, 8" wide band over the row. Over the top "pegging time"

treatments were applies at 3 different time intervals as a band 12-14" inches wide.

Peanut plants were observed for symptoms of phytotoxicity over the season. Six

soil cores (1" diameter) were taken in the row on November 31 and 5 cores to 10" deep

were taken in each plot and composite. Nematodes were extracted from a 100 cm3

aliquant of soil from each plot utilizing the centrifugation-sugar flotation technique and

second-stage juveniles were counted. Peanuts were mechanically harvested November

19. They were force air-dried to 10% moisture, weighed, and yield converted to lbs./A.

Results and Discussion

All nematicide treatments significantly increased yield over the control. Highest

numerical yields were obtained the combinations of Temik 15 treatments at planting and

"at-pegging". Both the single applications of 10 lbs. of Temik 15 G, either at-planting

or at-pegging significantly improved yields over the control. Nematode numbers were

quite variable but generally were higher in the higher yielding treatments.

Yield of peanut in this test was low, reflecting the high population densities

present in the field and the sandy soil type. While the materials improved peanut yield,

rotation is needed in this field to reduce nematode populations and allow these

nematicides to perform better.
