A farmer’s guide to profitable groundnut production


Nigeria used to be the largest groundnut exporting country in Africa, but a combination of drought, rosette, and other diseases wiped out groundnut production in the 1970s. ICRISAT, IAR, and partners have developed and released new improved high-yielding varieties with combined resistance to major biotic stresses. It is, however, necessary to disseminate these varieties with improved crop management packages on a large scale to increase and restore the profitability of groundnut cultivation in Nigeria. This handbook provides an effective guide for farmers on groundnut crop production and general management best practices in Nigeria and its neighboring countries.
