Early detection and control of these insects will be necessary in or- der to cut down the damage that the insects do to the plants. When should I begin treat- ing my peanuts for leafspot? The latest recommendation is to begin spraying or dusting peanuts to control leafspot when the plants reach 6 inches in diameter (any direction). Fun- gicides should be applied to the peanut crop every 14 days from the first application to 14 days before harvest. Yes; this means 6 or more applications but it has been proven as a way to pro- duce profitable peanuts. Do we have any boll weevils on the cotton? Yes, you can find a few boll weevils in all fields we have checked that had at least two true leaves. Live weevil counts on 2 to 6 leaf stage cotton is running slightly higher now than they were at this time last year. You can bet enough weevils sur- vived the mild winter to be a real problem. The real test of the 19'/2 weevil infestation will be known when the success of the first generation "hatch- out" occurs which could come about June Z0, to July I, in Covington County.
