Paraquat is a key component of postemergence tank-mixtures used in peanut weed control programs. New cultivars have been released with high yield potential and different growth habits, including dense and sparse canopies, vigorous leaf development, and maturity. Paraquat is typically tank-mixed with a safener in order to reduce injury on peanut. Utilizing Ele-max Nutrient Concentrate (ENC) in paraquat tank-mixtures as a safener has received interest across the state. Based on the results of studies conducted in 2016-2017, Georgia peanut producers have flexibility in selecting runner-type peanut cultivars to use with paraquat tank-mixtures without major concern for yield or grade decline. From these studies, peanut is able to recover from herbicide injury with no yield or grade loss.
