Longtime Georgia peanut agronomist says farewell ... sort of

But he is retiring at the end of the year and moving to Auburn University to become a department head there. Beasley talks with Farm Press associate editor Brad Haire about the retirement, the move and gives a little advice to whomever is tapped to replace him in the top peanut-producing state in the country.
