Abstract: Because of its value as a food and oil source, an animal feed, and its adaptability to a wide range of soil and climatic conditions, groundnut has spread from its origin in South America to most countries within the boundaries of 40 deg N and 40 deg S latitudes. Groundnut is an important crop in the semi-arid tropics, that produces about 65% of the world crop. Production in the semi-arid tropics is constrained by socioeconomic, biological, and environmental factors. The future of groundnut in this region depends on the extent to which research provides solutions to these constraints, and the successfu0851l transfer of new technology to the
