Peanut Response to Crop Rotations Including Clary Sage, Snap Bean, and Sweet Potato
Peanut rotation systems most often include corn and cotton. However, more diverse rotation systems can be found in some regions of North Carolina, and rotations of peanut with clary sage, snap bean, and sweet potato have increased in recent years. In a recent study conducted to determine visible estimates of disease expressed in the peanut canopy, plant parasitic nematode population in soil, and yield of peanut after rotations including clary sage, corn, cotton, soybean, and wheat, peanut yield was affected by rotation and cultivar but not the interaction of these treatment factors. Results from the study indicate that peanut can be grown immediately following sweet potato but not following the rotation of snap bean, wheat, and clary sage without a reduction in peanut yield.
