SC_Peanut_Manual_Cover.jpgPeanut is a relatively high-input, high management row crop. But profit is not determined by spending more money or adding one more product to the spray tank that "might help." It is about doing the fundamentals on time and getting the most out of every dollar invested.

This is a guide for making timely peanut management decisions. The intention is to lay out a step-by-step "game plan" for peanut production under South Carolina conditions, and to provide growers, county agents, private consultants, and industry representatives with a reference that will answer most practical questions about peanut production.

2012 sc pest mangagement hanbook.jpgThe Pest Management Handbook is a set of recommendations developed by Clemson University Extension pest management specialists and university researchers for South Carolina growers. These recommendations were derived from various sources of information available to these contributors at times prior to publishing this handbook and represent their current views on managing field crop pests based on pesticide labels, their own research or experience, and/or a number of other sources.

The 2012 Pest Management Handbook is available here.  The chapters pertaining to pest control in peanut are here.
