Congressional candidate Roebke questions peanut price reporting

Email News Alerts

Alan Roebke of Alexandria, a candidate for Congress in Minnesota's 7th District, is asking the Justice Department and the Secretary of Agriculture's Office for an audit of farm peanut price reporting.


The reports set subsidy payments to peanut growers for their past, present and future crops.

Roebke said he is calling for the investigation because "there is clearly no economic basis for the unusually low peanut prices reported weekly to USDA."
