A second referendum to determine whether U.S. peanut growers want to continue funding the National Peanut Board (NPB) as a research and promotion tool has been scheduled for August 16 through September 17, 2004. Questions regarding the validity of the peanut rower mailing list used to distribute ballots for a May/June referendum resulted in the votes being nullified, according to NPB. "It was an unfortunate turn of events," said Raffaela Marie Fenn, NPB president and managing director. Fenn and Donnie White, NPB grower representative and incoming chairman from North Carolina, discussed the upcoming referendum and the need for an industry-wide research/promotion vehicle with Farm Press staff during the recent Southern Peanut Farmers Federation meeting in Panama City, Florida.
