SPGC is Back on the Beach

Cindy Zimmerman2021 Conference, AudioLeave a Comment

Peanut growers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi are gathered together again live and in-person for their annual Southern Peanut Growers Conference at Panama City Beach, Florida. After having to cancel the popular event last year due to COVID, everyone is thrilled to be back on the beach.

As has been the tradition, we start off the conference by interviewing the executive directors of each state grower organization. From left to right in the photo, we have the new kid on the block Jacob Davis, Alabama Peanut Producers Association; Malcolm Broome, Mississippi Peanut Growers Association; Ken Barton, Florida Peanut Producers Association, and Don Koehler, Georgia Peanut Commission.

Each director discusses the current status of the peanut crop in their state, priorities for peanut growers, and how it feels to be back together.
