Peanut Farmers may be better to have than rice Farmers. Peanuts will take a lot less of our ground water, and maybe will attract less mosquitoes.

Ever been in the Bottoms in Randolph county, no gumbo there . I think they know about the soil in the bottoms; that is why the test plots are located in that area.
