Southern peanut growers hear sustainability message


As the 15thannual Southern Peanut Growers Conference got underway last week, Randy Griggs, executive director of the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, offered a bit of insight into what has become one of the most successful conferences in the peanut industry.

“This is now the biggest peanut meeting in the industry,” Griggs said. “We had close to 600 registered this year.”

Griggs said the conference program  offers discussions on issues that growers do not typically get from production meetings. “We don’t try to rehash what goes on at production meetings,” he said. “We try to address issues that are on growers’ minds. For instance, this year’s theme is sustainability. We understand that farmers are the best stewards of the land.”
