A video published by Delta Farm Press reports that 50,000 acres of peanuts have been planted in Mississippi this year.

According to the video, this promising crop is being grown for the first time by many of the contributing farmers.

With the highest number of peanut acres being planted since 1943, the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation reported good progress for the crop at the end of June. However, “abnormally hot, dry weather was a concern for growers in many areas.”
