Peanuts

More than 18,000 acres of peanuts were harvested in 2010

There were over 57 million pounds of peanuts produced in 2010 with a production value of $12 million.

Peanuts have traditionally been grown only in south Mississippi but now they are being used as a rotational crop with cotton in the delta
