Production Research

Production Research Means Efficiency and Sustainability

Since 2001, the National Peanut Board (NPB) has allocated more than $37.9 million toward state and industry production research. Additionally, NPB leveraged over $1.5 million of NPB and other industry partners' funds to recieve over $2.7 million in NIFA match. Each year, we allocate funding for state and regionally identified research programs to maximize value for the dollar, eliminate duplication, encourage collaboration and eliminate gaps.

A dime here, a dollar there — when it comes to research, it all adds up to keeping peanut production affordable for farmers. Step by step, production research helps keep USA peanut farming competitive on the world market.
