Greenhouse studies were conducted in 1995, 1996, and 1998 to measure the effect of preplant incorporated (PPI) and preemergence (PRE) applications of ethalfluralin and pendimethalin on growth of individual peanut seedlings in pots. Herbicide rates evaluated were 0, 0.6, 1.1, and 2.2 kg ai/ha for each herbicide. Parameters measured were time of emergence, seedling height, canopy width, foliage biomass, root length, and root biomass of individual plants. PPI applications were more injurious than PRE applications for all parameters regardless of herbicide. Ethalfluralin PPI inhibited peanut seedling growth more than equivalent rates of pendimethalin PPI. However, peanut seedling responses to PRE applications of ethalfluralin and pendimethalin were generally the same.
