Groundnuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) are grown throughout the tropical and warm temperate regions of the world, with commercial production principally between latitudes 40° N and 40° S. Leading producing nations are India (33.4% of global production), China (27.8%), USA (9.3%), Senegal (4.2%), Indonesia (4.2%), Nigeria (3.3%), Myanmar (3.0%), Sudan (2.7%) and Argentina (2.0%). Clearly, the crop is grown in several agroecological systems and under numerous socioeconomic environments. Yield of groundnuts is often low due to diseases and insects, unpredictable and variable rainfall, inability to apply improved agronomic practices and production technology, lack of cultivars adapted to local conditions, low financial inputs, lack of small-scale farm implements, and lack of the infrastructure required to supply quality seed of improved cultivars (Nigam et al., 1991).
