There have heen four major reviews of thc literature discussing the insects living on groundnut plants sincc 1973 (Feakin, 1973; Smith and Barfield. 1982; Wightman cr ul., 1990; Gahukar, 1992). Thcre are also several more coricisc accounts dealing with pcst problcms in gcncral (e.g. Wightman and Amin, 1988; Wightman ci ul., 1989; Lynch and Douce, 1992), specific topics, such as host plant resistance (Lynch, 1990). and discrete geographical zones such as India (Amin, 198$), developed countries (Biddlc er al., 1992) and southern Africa (Wightman, 1988a; 1989; Sohati and Sithanantham, 1990; Sithanantham et al., 1990). Feakin (1973), Rcdlinger and Davis (1982), Dick (1987a.b) and Wightman et al. (19%)) provide dctails of the inscct pest problems associated with stored groundnut and their m;inagcmcnt in developed and developing countries. There is little more to add to what has already bccn recorded about the post-harvest pests of groundnut - thc lirnitcd covcrage given to them in this chapter should not he taken as an indication that they lack importance. Thus, although the gcncral litcraturc up to 20 ycars ago was somewhat sparse (despitc the publication of a large body of information in primary sources). there have sincc been attempts to redrcss the situation.
