ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the peanut production. The overall, U.S. peanut production has a bright outlook with strong domestic demand and steady exports, but the 2005 crop could prove to be the first real test of the new peanut program. Peanut acreage continued to increase in the Southeast and in Georgia in 2004. The Southeast has increased planted acreage to 1 million acres, which is up from 806,000 in 2002. Total peanut production exceeded 2 million tons in 2004. The large crop was a result of several thousand late planted acres in Georgia and the second best U.S. average yield on record.
