Question of the Week: White Mold

Last week the question was:  What is the white stuff growing on these peanut vines?

This is white mold, Sclerotium rolfsii.  White mold is one of the most serious diseases we deal with in peanuts along with leaf spot.  Peanut growers have to maintain a good disease control program to combat these diseases.  Guidlines for making disease control programs can be found on pages 45-47 of the Clemson Peanut Production Guide.  We’ve started seeing some white mold pop up in a few fields recently.  Refer back to this post for some suggestions from Peanut Specialist Jay Chapin on what to do when white mold is found.

Here is this week’s question:  What are these things eating this eggplant?
