Last week the question was: What is wrong with this peanut leaf?
This is a symptom of 2,4DB injury. We use 2,4-DB in peanut quite a bit because its a great broadleaf herbicide and it’s easier on the peanuts than 2,4-D. This is only cosmetic damage and the plants should grow out of it without any affect on yield. Nevertheless, growers should always be careful to calibrate sprayers properly and use the labeled rates.
Here is this week’s question: How can you use this photo to tell if this watermelon is ripe?
