Additional Information



Low groundnut productivity in many developing countries remains a cause of concern to the scientifi c community and policy makers. Good crop agronomy is crucial in harnessing the full potential of the crop in addition to appropriate variety and quality seed, to faciliate a synergistic effect on crop productivity. This lucidly written farmer-friendly booklet is a treasure trove of information on improved cultural practices in groundnut cultivation which will empower a farmer to make his/her own decision on various components of integrated crop management technology. Although generalized agronomic recommendations are often made, they need to be customized to meet the requirements of specifi c fi elds and be compatible with the socio-economic conditions under which farmers function. Information on harvest and post-harvest operations will help ensure that farmers produce high quality groundnuts fetching them a higher price in the market. Given its utility, I am sure this booklet will be translated into several vernacular languages to benefi t a wider section of the farming community.
