Studies were conducted in the field from 2020-2021 in peanut and cotton to optimize peanut growth and yield through prohexadione calcium application methods as well as weed control through increasing herbicide sites of action. These studies were established on multiple on-farm and small-plot locations in Mississippi. Prohexadione calcium studies concluded that following application of prohexadione calcium effects on yield and peanut growth were inconsistent. Neither varying application timing nor rate resulted in peanut yield that was different than when adhering to the label recommendations. Increasing sites of action studies concluded that broadleaf signalgrass and Amaranthus species control was optimized at four SOAs and two SOAs, respectively. Based on this study, the current recommendation of additional SOAs will not result in increased weed control.
