The article provides information about the two indexes related to diseases in plants. It reports that the University of Georgia Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus Index and the Fungal Disease Index both have proven themselves to be invaluable tools for peanut producers in the lower Southeast. However, many growers, consultants and county agents have requested that the two indexes be combined for the sake of convenience, and that has been done for 2005. Combining the two indexes will be a great benefit to growers. The final point tally in the combined index will indicate the relative risk to tomato spotted wilt virus, white mold or leaf spot, and rhizoctonia limb rot.
