Peanuts are king in Georgia, and Georgia’s the national commodity leader when it comes to peanut production, so it only makes sense that the Georgia Peanut Farm Show & Conference is a big deal. According to the event’s host, the Georgia Peanut Commission, they welcomed almost 2,000 growers to the January 21st event held on the UGA Tifton Campus.
An annual event 40 years in the making, the show & conference offered over 100 exhibits, Peanut Production Seminars from the University of Georgia, Industry Seed Seminars and a lively schedule of events for attendees. Seminar topics included peanut seed, market outlooks, peanut pests and diseases and more. The event also featured door prizes and an awards ceremony that included the presentation of the Outstanding Young Peanut Farmer Award to a deserving Georgia peanut farmer.
