The University of Georgia's Peanut Fungal Disease Risk Index is, by necessity, a continually changing toot for growers, says Bob Kemerait, University of Georgia Extension plant pathologist. The fungal disease index, modeled after the University of Georgia Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus Index, assigns points to each production variable in the categories of leafspot diseases, white mold and Rhizoctonia limb rot. Growers then can evaluate the potential risk in a given field and use this information in preparing for disease in a coming season as "low," "medium" or "high." Currently, the index is an excellent educational tool for the grower, says Kemerait. Not only does it help the grower predict the severity of disease in the field in the coming season, but it also allows him to assess how changes in a production program may affect risk.
