ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the good yields of peanut crop in the United States. Overall, the 2004 peanut crop is off to a good start. Reports from across the peanut belt indicate that growers are feeling pretty good about the prospects of the crop. In at least a couple of places, contract offerings had a bearing on the amount of acres planted. Much of the acreage increase has come from Virginia and North Carolina, with first time growers. Calhoun and Orangeburg counties are now the top two peanut producing areas of the state.
