Eligible producers are those who are engaged in the production and sale of peanuts and who own or share the ownership and risk of loss of the crop, he says. The National Peanut Board will submit the Mississippi Peanut Growers Association slate of nominees to the Secretary of Agriculture, who will make the appointments.

The National Peanut Borad encourages inclusion of persons of any race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation and marital or family status.

“All those who qualify as peanut producers are encouraged to attend and run for nomination,” Broome says.

It is USDA’s policy that membership on industry-government boards and committees accurately reflect the diversity of individuals served by the programs.
