The article presents information on a report that shows that growers in Alabama, Georgia and Florida are planning to increase their peanut acreage. It is expected that there will be a record increase in the number of new peanut growers in non-traditional areas this year in these three states. The farmers are planning a decrease in other crops like cotton, corn, soybean and tobacco as they see peanuts as a remedy to their increasing cotton nematode populations.
