Production Research Means Efficiency and Sustainability
Since 2001, the National Peanut Board has invested $29 million in production research and $12 million over the past five years. Each year, we allocate funding for state and regionally identified research programs to maximize value for the dollar, eliminate duplication, encourage collaboration and eliminate gaps.
A dime here, a dollar there — when it comes to research, it all adds up to keeping peanut production affordable for farmers.
Just as farmers walk the fields, here you can take a virtual walk around the Peanut Belt to sample some of your research. This section of our site divides nearly recent research summaries by the three peanut growing regions — Virginia/Carolinas, Southeast and Southwest. Then you will find different research categories so you can read about research studies which are specific to your area of interest.
Step by step, production research can keep USA peanut farming competitive on the world market.
