Peanut planting time is here.  Here are some important things to consider from Dr. Eric Prostko, UGA Extension Weed Specialist:

• Start clean using a combination of tillage, cover crops, and/or herbicides

• Use 2 to 4 residual herbicides in the system, depending upon the need and/or weed

• Cracking or early-postemergence applications of paraquat may not always be needed in peanut fields that started off weed-free and where residual herbicides (Prowl, Sonalan, Strongarm, and Valor) were activated with timely rainfall or irrigation

• Make timely postemergence applications (weeds ≤ 3” tall)

• Hand-remove weed escapes before seed is produced
