Peanut Grower's Convention

Peanut growers lost more than $600,000 in peanut revenue but at this year's Peanut Expo in Albany Georgia. Peanut experts are trying to change this plummeting figure.

More than 400 peanut growers from across the Peach State attended this year's convention. Several hot issues on the peanut platform included cost effective production and talk of a possible layoff of more than 200 peanut officials

Experts at this year's peanut gathering say the biggest challenge for peanut farmers in the new year will be to bring back profitability. This week’s expo was sponsored by Georgia’s Peanut Association.
