    By Darren Chan

    Published 3 months ago

Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides. First, only a little needs to be applied because it will grow to continually cover the roots...

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 10 months ago

    It’s common knowledge among peanut farmers that the farther out you space your peanut crops in your rotation, the better off the peanuts will be. Research backs this up. Jason Sarver, Extension Peanut Specialist for Mississippi State University, shared some trial work published by Dr. Scott Tubbs of the University of Georgia in 2015, that looked at peanut yield when grown in multiple rotation lengths, from continuous peanut to every 4 years... In the book, Phatak explains that they use the legume covers — crimson clover, cahaba vetch or subterranean clover — with the rye or along field borders, around ponds, near irrigation lines and in other non-cropped areas as close to fields as possible, to “provide the food needed to support beneficials at higher populations...
