Lactofen plus crop oil adjuvants are increasingly being used to combat acetolactate synthase-resistant weeds in peanut production. To control a broader spectrum of weeds, it is desirable to mix 2,4-DB with lactofen. However, lactofen can be highly injurious to peanuts. It is unknown if the addition of 2,4-DB will exacerbate or prolong the injury observed by lactofen. Experiments were conducted in Citra and Jay, FL in 2011 and 2012 to examine the impact of lactofen, 2,4-DB and lactofen + 2,4-DB applied at 15, 30, and 45 days after planting (DAP) on peanut injury and yield. It was observed that 2,4-DB did not increase foliar injury or stunting (as measured by canopy width) compared to lactofen alone. Additionally, yield was not impacted by any herbicide combination or application timing. From these data, lactofen plus 2,4-DB combinations, applied with crop oil adjuvants, can be used with little concern for exacerbating effects on peanut growth or yield relative to lactofen applied alone
