The article reports that a two- or three-year rotation of peanuts with cotton or other crops can help growers manage disease and possibly lower the number of fungicide treatments required, according to Oklahoma State University (OSU) Extension pathologist John Damicone. Damicone adds that integrated management of peanut diseases is needed to manage root-knot nematodes, early leaf spot, late leaf spot and other diseases.
