Groundnut production constraints and farmers’ trait preferences: a pre-breeding study in Togo


Groundnut is an important legume crop in Togo. However, groundnut yield has been steadily decreasing for decades as a result of the lack of an organized breeding program to address production constraints. Though low-yielding varieties and late leaf spot have been often reported as the most important constraints, there is no documented evidence. Identifying and documenting the major production constraints is a prerequisite for establishing a good breeding program with clearly defined priority objectives and breeding strategies. Thus, the objectives of this study were to identify groundnut production constraints and assess farmers’ preferred traits.
