The 17th annual Farm Press awards presented to peanut farmers in different regions this year had a new name – the Peanut Efficiency Awards. The Farm Press editorial staff made the name change this year from profitability to efficiency but the end result is the same – three outstanding farmers who utilize the best tools and practices for maximum results on their farms.
This year’s winners are pictured here with Farm Press Publications Content Director Forrest Laws on the right and Dr. Marshall Lamb of the National Peanut Research Laboratory on the left.
