Growing organic peanuts in Georgia offers opportunities and challenges. Interested? Learn more about it in a free forum August 21 at the National Environmentally Sound Production Agriculture Laboratory in Tifton.

From 2:00 to 5:00PM, researchers, growers and economists will discuss peanut varieties, management, production costs, weeds, diseases and processing.

For more information, visit www.georgiaorganics.com on the Web. Or call Albert Culbreath at (229) 386-3156. Or e- mail him at spotwilt@tifton.uga.edu .

The event is sponsored by Georgia Organics and the University of Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station. It ends with a peanut boil featuring experimental organic peanuts grown at Heritage Organic Farm near Savannah.
