georgiaThe Georgia Peanut Commission and Georgia Bankers Association are joining forces Oct. 16-20 to promote the 41st annual Georgia Peanut Bank Week. Financial institutions and local banks across the state will offer a tribute to Georgia’s 3,400 peanut farm families and the sustainability they provide to Georgia’s state and local economies. Southeast AgNet’s Randall Weiseman talked with Joy Crosby, director of communications for the Georgia Peanut Commission, who says the 2017 theme is “Peanuts: Sustaining Georgia’s Rural Economy.”
