Peanut Commission hands out awards

January 16, 2003

ALBANY -- Thursday was the 27th annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show and Conference.  About 1200 peanut growers, shellers, and manufacturers checked out the tractors, tills and other equipment on the tradeshow floor. They also listened to presentations on water usage, pesticides and payment limits.

Show Director Emory Murphy said, "Making a profit is foremost in growers minds, if you are going to have production sustained here in South GA. So they are coming out to see what's new in the industry and how they can cut costs.

The Peanut commission also handed out four awards to people who made major contributions to the industry in the past year. They went to Lavon Ackley, President of Peter Pan, Michael Adams, President of the University of Georgia, Senator Saxby Chambliss, and WALB's Dave D'Marko.
