Farmers will be able to earn private and commercial pesticide applicator certification, as well as learn about cutting-edge research and developments during the University of Georgia Peanut Production Seminar and industry-wide sponsored Peanut Seed Seminar.

Farm show chairman Rodney Dawson is looking forward to the 2020 show and having a large crowd of farmers attend like previous years.
