The article explores the importance of knowing the history of a field to effectively control crop diseases, particularly the soil-borne pathogens in peanuts. According to Oklahoma State University Extension plant pathologist John Damicone, rotation, proper fungicide use and scouting also play significant roles in controlling peanut diseases. Damicone further highlights the need for farmers to consider all the available disease management tools to contain the disease.
