Peanut Program

This Peanut program is intended for informational use only. For the best possible results tailored to meet your needs and soil type, check with your Grower's Source™ representative for specific recommendations.

Pre-PlantGoalReason

Normal Soil: Apply 32 oz./Acre N-KEEPER

*Alkali Soil: Apply 32 oz./Acre Overhaul

Hold moisture in sandy soil and to stimulate the micro-biology

Apply one day to one month before planting. This helps hold moisture in sandy soil and stimulated microorganism in preparation for planting. These are water management tools to aid in air and water exchange critical to stimulating microorganism in preparation to planting. OVERHAUL also helps degrade sodium. It detoxifies and flushes harmful effects of sodium or carryover herbicides.

NOTE: *For pH higher than 6.8 and/or high sodium content. Also good for chemically damaged fields.
First BloomGoalReason

2 to 4 lbs. 10-20-20 dry soluble fertilizer

16 Oz./Acre BOLT Foliar over the row.

8 Oz./Acre N-KEEPER or 8 Oz./Acre SSS to aid in fungal applications*

Apply the above foliar program mid-bloom and peak bloom.

To make plant spread quickly and to fully bloom and set a good crown crop. Then to set limb crop and to fill out peanuts for high grades and yields.

The N-KEEPER activates the soil biology, which is what makes nutrients available for plant intake, and the BOLT helps absorption. The 10-20-20 gives a small trigger of nitrogen to spur growth, a small dose of potassium for disease resistance. The large dose of phosphorus is needed for strong root growth where the peanuts will grow and becomes immediately available to the seedling. Any unused phosphate will help later with blooming and will help with crop finishing.

Note: *Minimal rates of fungicide have been effective when using SSS.

Program A (Our Recommended Program)GoalReason

16 Oz./Acre BOLT at First Bloom, Mid-Bloom and Peak Bloom

2 to 4 Lbs./Acre 10-20-20 dry soluble fertilizer with each application

8 to 16 oz. SSS per acre if used to supplement as part of fungicide control

Build healthy plants to resist disease/increase yields.

The BOLT aids the 10-20-20 in stimulation of blooms and root growth. It also aids in water management and heat and drought stress. It has a systemic reaction with fungicides to make it more effective and last longer. We suggest the lowest recommended rates of fungicides when combined with BOLT and SSS. (Some growers apply less than the recommended rate and have proven effective. We suggest you experiment if you wish to cut costs). Many farmers have had great success using Growers Source SSS at early signs of blight.

Note: You do not put high nitrogen on peanuts because you will get too much energy put into vines, detracting from peanut production.

Program BGoalReason

6-8 Oz./Acre REVAMP

6-8 Oz./Acre SSS

2-4 Lbs./Acre 10-20-20 water soluble fertilizer with each application

Healthy plants with increased yields

Can be applied with fungicides and up to 4 applications. We suggest the lowest recommended rates of fungicides. (Some growers apply less than the recommended rate and have proven effective. We suggest you experiment if you wish to cut costs).

Note: You do not put high nitrogen on peanuts because you will get too much energy put into the vines, detracting from peanut production.

Fungicide Spray Program

16 to 32 oz SSS per 100 gal tank mix. SSS is a pharmaceutical surfactant that enhances fungicide that it is tanked mixed with. SSS will also enhance your control of Asian Rust and White Mold.

Insect Spray Program

16 to 32 oz INSECT-X-CITER per 100 gal tank mix. Insect-X-Citer will excite the insects to move around and come in contact with the spray, and you will have better control.

What Growers Say

"My grades on the peanuts were 5 to 7 points higher, which paid for the cost of the Grower's Source products. The best part was the yield difference. On some fields I had 1,500 to 2,300 lbs more." -B.S., Texas

"I was able to use ½ rates on my fungicides using the SSS with them." -K.K., Oklahoma

"My plants were so healthy on the Grower's Source program that I did not have spider mites when all the farms around me had them and sprayed." -J.B., Texas
