Scientists from six countries of the Central Asia and Caucasus region participated in the workshop. The first chapter discusses the groundnut and briefly describes current groundnut research and development at ICRISAT. The next six chapters document facts about the current status of groundnut production in these CAC countries. The constraints and opportunities for expansion of groundnut production have been listed. Spatial distribution of the crop in these countries on an ecoregional scale and potential areas for expansion have been shown using maps developed on geographic information systems. The final chapter is an overall synthesis, with suggested priorities and future areas of research to enhance and stabilize groundnut yield and production in the CAC region.
