Vinclozolin, myclozolin, and dicloran reduced Sclerotinia minor blight on peanuts and produced significantly greater pod yields than untreated controls. The efficacy of all three materials was improved by applications on a preventative rather than an on-demand schedule. Application of myclozolin tank-mixed with chlorothalonil for leaf spot control was as effective in controlling Sclerotinia blight as application with large droplet nozzles. Ectaconazole was not effective against Sclerotinia blight in these trials.
