Abstract: Aldicarb, carbofuran, disulfoton, and phorate applied in-furrow at planting provided control of immature thrips, Frankliniella (usCG (Hinds) in 1980. Carbofuran failed to control thrips in 1981. In both years, plant growth for peanuts treated with eldicarb and disulfaton was more rapid than growth of untreated peanuts. Both adult and immature thrips were more abundant in flowers than in terminals after flowering was initiated. There were no significant differences, however, in peanut yield, quality characteristics, or crop value in either year. Therefore, the value of systemics for thrips control on Florunner peanuts in south Georgia is primarily cosmetic and cannol be justified on the basis of increased yield or quality, or 8 more rapid plant growth.
