Plant parasitic nematodes are one of the most limiting factors

in field crop production in north Florida. As part of the

nematology research program at IFAS NFREC, Quincy, a test was

conducted with 'Southern Runner' peanut utilizing different

application methods and rates of nematicides from Rh6ne Poulenc Ag


Materials and Methods

A field trial was conducted at the IFAS North Florida Research

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

with the peanut root-knot nematode, Meliodogyne arenaria. Preplant

populations of M. arenaria in this soil was less than 1/100 cm3 as

a result of fallowing the previous year. Prior to planting, the

land was prepared by moldboard plowing and double discing. Plots

were 2 rows wide (36" wide rows) by 25' long. Treatments were

placed in a randomized complete block design and replicated six


All materials utilized in this test were granular formulations

and initial applications were made at-planting on June 5, 1992

(Table 1). The materials were applied with two tractor-mounted

Gandy applicators. Mid-season/pegging time treatments were applied

similarly on August 12.

Plants were observed for symptoms of phytotoxicity at-planting

and mid-season after chemical treatments. Soil samples were taken

in-row on August 25 and on November 16. 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 juvenilles/100 cm3 soil.

Peanuts were dug on November 2and picked with a long picker on

November 9. The peanuts from each were force air-dried to 10%

moisture and weighed. Plot yields were converted to yield in

Results and Discussion

Peanut growth was good in all plots, and no phytotoxicity was

observed in any of the treatments. Three treatments significantly

increased peanut yields over the control and" all nematicide

treatments numerically increased peanut yield (Table 1). The

peanut root-knot nematode numbers at mid-season were low to

moderate but increased rapidly to at-harvest populations. No

significant differences, however, were observed in nematode numbers

between the nematicide treatments and the control.

In general, those treatments which included a mid-season band

produced yields higher than the single at-planting treatments.

These data support those of others concerning the importance of a

mid-season/at-pegging nematicide treatment to increase peanut

yields. Further work on mid-season/at-pegging treatment timing

would be useful to optimize control of the peanut root-knot
