Alabama Florida Peanut Trade Show

It's that time of year for the Alabama Florida Peanut Trade Show.

Local farmers got the chance to catch up with almost 80 vendors at the National Peanut Festival fairgrounds.

Exhibitors included equipment vendors, crop protection materials, and crop insurance companies.

It's the tenth year for the show, and officials say it gives farmers the chance to network all in one place.

"It just gives the farmers an excellent opportunity to visit with everybody in the agri-business community in one place instead of having to shop all around town or go to other cities around the southeast to find those equipment dealers, those fertilize dealerships, so it just provides a very good location,” said Ken Barton, executive director of Florida Peanut Producers Association.

Farmers also got the chance to ask questions about the newly passed farm bill.
