**For the second straight year, the winner of the statewide Peanut Butter Challenge is, Santa Rosa County, with a whopping 1,970 jars for a total of 2,485 pounds collected.

www.morningagclips.com reports, the jar collection brought together 50 competitors UF and Florida A&M Extension offices, the UF College of Agriculture and many community organizations.

In all, donations totaled nearly 28,000 pounds, enough to make about 440,000 peanut butter sandwiches!


**The USDA’s National Ag Statistics Service will begin mailing the 2023 Census of Aquaculture forms starting December 18.

The agency will mail the forms to all producers who indicated in their 2022 Census that they produce and sell aquaculture products.

The deadline to respond will be January 15, 2024.

The Census of Aquaculture will provide comprehensive data at the state and national levels.

**USDA Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Alexis Taylor will lead an agribusiness trade mission to Seoul, South Korea, in March.

Taylor says the agency is inviting U.S. exporters who wish to participate in this trade mission to submit their applications.

She says, North Asian markets are a source of stability for America’s exports and an opportunity for market share expansion due to its heavy reliance on food imports.
