Richard Barnhill with peanut brokers Mazur and Hockman gave growers an update on the supply/demand situation for peanuts.
His main message was that even though the crop is going to be big this year, there’s plenty of demand for peanuts. “We need to maintain acres about the same as we have now and the market is going to make sure that peanuts stay competitive with other commodities,” Richard says.
