In the developing world, groundnuts are commonly grown in intercropping systems, especially by small farmers who use traditionalcombinations often involving up to 5-6 crops. Detailed statistics of farming practice are difficult to obtain, but it has been estimated that 95% of the groundnuts in Nigeria and 56% in Uganda are grown as mixtures with other crops (Okigbo and Greenland 1976). In the Northern Guinea Savanna Zone of Nigeria, Kassam (1976) reported that only about 16% of the total area under groundnut was in sole croppingwhile about 70% was in 2-4 crop mixtures.
