The article focuses on the production of peanuts in the U.S. In the 2005 season, peanut production in Mississippi was around 4,000 pounds per acre. This was over 1,000 pounds higher than the national average. In Alabama and Georgia, average yields for 2005 were 2,500 pounds per acre and 3,000 pounds per acre, respectively. Mississippi's peanut acreage has been steadily increasing since 2002. The 2002 farm bill helped in increasing peanut production, as it removed the quota system and allowed farmers to select how many acres of peanuts they wanted to plant.
