Peanut Crop Update

By  | 

Headland, AL (WTVY) Farmers are still confident this year's peanut crop will be one of the best ever.

Experts say recent rains---mostly from Tropical Storm Irma---slowed the process down a bit.

But crop hopes remain promising.

Caleb Bristow, Executive Director Alabama Peanut Producers says:
"So far everything looks good; you know harvest is really just getting started. We've had a lot of rain here in the last couple of weeks, kind of slowed things down but so far you know numbers look good based on what I'm hearing across the state."

Weather permitting all of the peanuts should be picked by early November.
