Abstract

Nigeria used to be the highest groundnut exporting country in Africa, but a combination of drought, rosette and other diseases wiped out groundnut production in the 1970s. ICRISAT, IAR and partners have developed and released new improved high-yielding varieties with combined resistance to major biotic stresses. It is, however, necessary to disseminate these varieties with improved crop management packages on a large scale to increase and restore the profitability of groundnut cultivation in Nigeria. This handbook aims to be an effective guide to farmers on groundnut crop production and general management best practices for efficient groundnut production in Nigeria and its neighboring countries.
