ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some farmers have been able to get in the fields to plant peanuts, despite a wet spring.
UGA Extension Associate Professor Scott Monfort says rainy weather has gotten a little less frequent lately, giving farmers a chance to plant.
Monfort says south Georgia farmers will plant a lot of peanuts again this year.
"It looks like there is going to be a large year for us in peanuts. I think we will probably have somewhere similar to last year in the number of acres," said Monfort.
Monfort says overproduction is a concern because there's a surplus of peanuts left from the previous year's huge crop.
