Missouri A Top Peanut Producer

In a nutshell, Missouri is emerging as a top peanut producing state in the country. Missouri Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn wants money appropriated designated to help operate the state’s three regional inspection offices and for the authorization to provide official grain and specialty crop inspection services throughout Missouri. This is because Missouri is emerging as one of the U.S.’s top peanut producing states in the country…

There was 28,249 tons of peanuts produced in Missouri’s latest growing season.
