Here is the second of two 2012 PeanutFax Harvest Survey Reports, sponsored by  the Southern staff of Chemtura AgroSolutions.


Thanks to everyone who responded this week!



Applied early, Dimilin® insect growth regulator prevents pest larvae from advancing to the next life stage, stopping them before they have a chance to damage your peanuts.

Dimilin 2L has the proven efficacy to help stop these common peanut pests:

• Lesser cornstalk borer
• Velvetbean caterpillars
• Beet, fall, southern and yellow-striped armyworms
• Green cloverworms
• Granulate cutworms
• Immature grasshoppers

"When we piggyback Dimilin with our peanut fungicide sprays, we often end up not having to use the more expensive pesticides for worm control and may also eliminate the need for an additional trip across the field—which saves money on labor and equipment. To growers that means a lot."

-Scott Brown, Retired Colquitt County
University of Georgia Extension Coordinator
