New crop sprouts in county

And, at least a few Tunica County growers are among those looking for a payout from the crop.
According to Anthony Bland, county agent with the Mississippi State Agricultural Extension Service in Tunica, three or four local growers are among those planting peanuts on land traditionally reserved for cotton.
