&uot;We will also listen to marketing strategies and planting decisions for the 2004 production season,&uot; said Cotten. &uot;Representatives from Farm Bureau and Peanut Growers Cooperative Marketing Association will be on hand, leading the discussion.&uot;

Always looking out for the farmers of Suffolk’s 430 square miles, Cotten will have booklets available, &uot;2003 Soybean Trials&uot; and the &uot;2004 Peanut & Production Guide.&uot; They are free for the asking and all farmers are invited to pick them up.

Every farmer interested in firming up and finalizing plans for the 2004 season – March planting is upon them – is invited to attend.
