CLEMSON, S.C. — Crops that emerge from seed left over from the previous season harvest are considered weeds in subsequent cropping cycles. In the case of peanuts, pods that detach from the pegs/vines during the digging and inversion process are not captured by the combine resulting in a harvest loss. The pods and seeds left at or below the soil surface after harvest can overwinter and germinate before or after the following crop is planted. With the newly planted rotation crop, these seedling peanuts can be competitive for nutrients, space, and water. This article discusses herbicide options for volunteer peanut control in corn and cotton.
