Data for: EXPLORING THE EFFICACY OF FUNGICIDES IN CONTROL OF PEANUT SMUT
Peanut smut control efficacy Peanut smut, caused by the soil-borne fungi Thecaphora frezii Carranza and Lindquist, is an endemic and yield reducing disease for the argentine main growing region. No management strategies for reducing smut infections are adopted by argentine growers, what is leading to a local accumulation of T. frezii inoculum. Local preliminary research concerning chemical control of peanut smut reported a wide range of control efficacy: higher doses of DMI+QoI mixture fungicides presented the highest control efficacy. This file shows the peanut smut severity in field and pot experiments using fungicides as an individual active ingredient.
