Peanut Expo Promises Recipe For Success After Year of Records After a year of record-setting weather and record-setting markets, peanut producers are making production plans for 2012.

For many producers there is no better way to start than by attending the Oklahoma Peanut Expo. This year’s expo is coming up on March 16th at Quartz Mountain Resort.

The expo will be preceded by the 67th Annual TX/OK Seed Quality Meeting.

This year’s program promises to be timely and the topics addressed reflect issues bound to affect operations statewide.

U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe will be one of the program’s highlights. As ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, Senator Inhofe will bring a “front-line” perspective on the EPA’s apparent warzone mentality towards agriculture.

For those wishing to attend the full program, there is a welcome bar-b-q social which begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday March 15th in the Wildcat Pavilion.

On Friday at 7 a.m., Bayer Crop Science is sponsoring a Seed Quality Meeting breakfast buffet in the Apache Room.
