Abstract : Groundnut. also known as peanut, is a leguminous food and feed crop vital to subsistence and incomes for millions of smallscale farmers in the developing world's semi-arid and subhumid zones. Its popularity with consumers worldwide is growing rapidly, allowin producing countries opportunities to build a valuable export trade. This book summarises the state of knowledge on the crop, first introducing readers to groundnut products and markets before describing the plant and its environment, best practices for growers, how to harvest and process the crop, common pests and diseases, and research to develop improved varieties. Two final chapters deal with the special requirements of seed production and the edible groundnut market. The book is packed with practical advice, making it indispensable for growers and others needing an introduction to the crop. The text is presented in a clear, easy-to-read style and many points are illustrated with photographs, figures and tables.
