The groundnut in farming systems and the rural economy — a global view

  • J. Smartt
Part of the World Crop Series book series


It is perhaps axiomatic to state that the groundnut crop is produced in farming systems ranging from the most primitive to the most advanced. The role it performs in these systems varies considerably, from labour-intensive shifting cultivation to highly capital-intensive systems in North America and Australia.
