19th Southern Peanut Growers Conference

The theme for the 19th annual Southern Peanut Growers Conference was Navigating the Marketplace and farmers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi once again met together on Florida’s Emerald Coast to learn and network.

The three-day event provides farmers with information about peanut production, legislative issues, marketing and promotions and includes members of the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, the Florida Peanut Producers Association, the Georgia Peanut Commission, and the Mississippi Peanut Growers Association.

Reps. Mike Rogers (R-AL) and Austin Scott (R-GA) attended the event to talk to peanut producers about the 2018 farm bill.

This virtual newsroom includes links to photos, audio, and video from the conference. All content posted here is available free of charge for digital or print publication or broadcast. Credit may be given to AgNewsWire.
