A Complete Strategy To Management Weeds in Natural Peanut Techniques within the Southeast


Don Cooper, Georgia Natural Peanut Alliance
Agricultural Outreach and Training Specialist

This mission will look at the effectiveness of an built-in weed management system in Licensed Natural peanut manufacturing using common mechanical cultivation and Eugenol, a broad spectrum herbicide derived from cloves and accredited for Licensed Natural manufacturing in a industrial formulation as Weed Slayer. The mission might be carried out with 4 Licensed Natural farmers at 4 places in Southwest Georgia: (1) two loamy/clayey farms, (2) two sandy farms. Every web site can have two fields planted roughly 2-3 weeks aside throughout the optimum planting window (Could/June) to measure weed pressures and yield. Every farm will start use of a tine weeder inside 5-7 days after planting, with 5-7 whole passes, adopted by 2-3 passes with sweeps till the peanut vegetation’ canopies prolong throughout the rows.
