Peanut Production by State 2024

Peanut production in the United States is an important aspect of the country's agriculture sector, with several states contributing significantly to the overall output. The leading peanut-producing states include Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, and Texas. These states benefit from a combination of favorable climate conditions, fertile soils, and well-established agricultural infrastructure that support the large-scale cultivation of peanuts. Peanuts are used in various food products, such as peanut butter, snack foods, and confections, as well as in the production of peanut oil, which has driven much of the industry's growth.

In terms of global peanut production, the United States ranks among the top producers, alongside countries such as China, India, Nigeria, and Indonesia. China and India, in particular, are the world's largest peanut producers, with their output significantly surpassing that of other countries. While the United States is not the largest producer, it still plays an important role in the international peanut market, exporting peanuts and peanut-derived products to various countries around the world.
