The article highlights the statement of Marshall Lamb, research director of the National Peanut Research Laboratory in Dawson, Georgia, concerning the increase of some crop growers on their acreage in the U.S. for 2010. He states that they must be cautious in making decision about their production because it might lead to over supply. He notes that they must consider the previous trends of the crops and determine which of those years they got the right balance of the supply and demand.
