Peanut producers can fine-tune their current farming operations with information gained at the Alabama-Florida Peanut Trade Show on Feb. 11 at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds in Dothan, Ala.
The show is sponsored by the Alabama Peanut Producers Association and the Florida Peanut Producers Association.
During this year's show Kelley Manufacturing Company is providing the grand door prize of one season's use of a new four- or six-row peanut combine, valued at $10,000. At the end of the season the winner has the option of purchasing the Combine from a KMC dealer after a reduction in the list price of $10,000. Amadas Industries is also providing a door prize of $10,000 towards the purchase of a peanut combine.
The show, which opens at 8:30 a.m. with door prize registration, offers farmers a full day to view the products and services of more than 60 exhibitors. Lunch will be in the NPF Premium Building following the morning trade show. The Associations will present a production educational program after the catered lunch. All peanut farmers in attendance have an opportunity to win more than $25,000 in door prizes.
Alabama growers who attend the production meeting segment will be eligible to receive CCA points.
