Just nutty

Stanley Fletcher, a UGA agricultural economist who specializes in peanuts, is quoted in national coverage on the glut of peanuts on this year’s market. In an article in Forbes Magazine, he said USDA officials could increase demand for American peanuts by lowering the posted price, but it would increase government costs. “If we don’t move the prices, we’re going to have a lot sitting there. Prices have to move down to move them into the marketplace,” Fletcher says.
