Information   Profile @ a Glance  
  • The cultivated peanut or groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.), originated in South America (Bolivia and adjoining countries) and is now grown throughout the tropical an warm temperate regions of the world.

  • Groundnut botanically known as Arachis hypogeae belongs to Leguminosae family.

  • Groundnut-or peanut as it is also called-is a four-foliate legume with yellow sessile flowers and subterranean fruits.

  • Groundnut is a valuable source of E, K, and B vitamins.

  • All parts of the peanut plant can be used.

  • The peanut, grown primarily for human consumption, has several uses as whole seeds or is processed to make peanut butter, oil, and other products

  • The main use of groundnut is as a source of edible oil, but the high oil and protein contents also make it an important food crop.

  • The optimum time for harvesting is when most pods have a veined surface, seed coats are colored, and 75% of pods show darkening on the inner surface of the hull.

  • The two most important operations in handling peanut after harvest are cleaning and drying to a safe moisture content.

  • The most serious fungal diseases of foliage are leaf-spots and rust.

  • India, China, and the United States produce about 70 percent of the world's groundnuts.

  • Throughout the world, farmers cultivate about 22.23 million hectares of groundnut (yielding 29.22 million tonnes of pods), of which 13.69 million hectares are in Asia (India 8 million ha; China 3.84 million ha), 7.39 million hectares in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 0.7 million hectares in Central and South America.
