The article presents a special report on the peanut growers in Florida. It is reported that the peanut producers in Florida are seeing the economic benefits of the crop and taking advantage of the favorable world market price. Like Alabama, many of the counties previously in cotton are now in peanut production because of the benefits to cotton. Peanuts help cotton through suppression of nematodes, and they offer the opportunity to put another crop in the rotation sequence that will benefit the field in the long term.
