Albany- Georgia's U.S. Senator is encouraging more people to eat more peanut products. U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss says there's concern over production with this year's peanut crop.

Recent rains in South Georgia has been exception for crops leading to a surplus, and too much of a good thing could be dangerous for local farmers.

"That's just going to mean that we're going to have more excess peanuts in this crop than we had in last year's crop, so the question becomes then what do we do with them," questioned Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia.

Chambliss says, if rains continue over the next 30 days farmers could expect the largest peanut crop we've ever had. In the past the government has paid to crush them, but that adds up to a large expense for the government. If prices drop, it could mean a loss for many farmers.
