The article reports that the U.S. peanut producers began 2004 with high expectations, coming off a record year in 2003. The 2003 U.S. peanut yield set a record at 3,159 pounds per acre. The Southeast led the way with a 3,238- pound yield, followed by the Virginia-Carolina Region at 3,126 pounds per acre and the Southwest at 2,962 pounds per acre. The Southeast's share of total production was 67 percent, followed by the V-C at 10 percent and the Southwest at 23 percent. Adjustments due to the new peanut program are evident in acreage shifts throughout the Peanut Belt. Some areas have declined while some new areas have emerged, particularly in the Southeast.
