54th APRES Annual Meeting
July 12-14, 2022
Omni Las Colinas Hotel, Dallas, TX

2022 APRES Attendees, Mark your calendar and join us for the 54th Annual Meeting. The APRES Annual Meeting shares original research, extension, and industry peanut project results in a 3-day meeting via business and social settings. World and industry leaders speak on the most pressing issues of our time. Committees, workshops, training sessions and shared down time provide opportunities for attendees to brainstorm, strategize, educate, learn and build relationships.

This year APRES’ Annual Meeting will be focusing on “Managing Risk and Promoting Sustainability in the Complex World of Peanuts”. The last two years has provided plenty of information on risk to ourselves. APRES 54 will examine risk factors facing the peanut industry and explore sustainable solutions. The Program Committee has lined up a fantastic group of speakers! (See below)
General Session:
Welcome to Texas! We Finally Got Here! Gary Schwarzlose, Bayer CropScience
A Fresh Look at Enhancing Sustainability of the Peanut Industry in the US Eric Coronel, American Peanut Council

In addition to this fabulous lineup of speakers/topics, you will hear results from 150+ original research, extension, and industry peanut projects in a series of breakout sessions over the 3-day meeting. Add Committee meetings, workshops, training sessions and shared down time to appreciate why APRES’ Annual Meeting is considered the best training ground for the peanut industry.
See you in Dallas in July!
