Since 1976, when groundnut became the fifth mandate crop of ICRISAT, research focused on major constraints to groundnut production in the semi-arid tropics. These are: diseases, insect pests, drought, poor nutrition, and lack of high yielding varieties with specific adaptation and requirements. Within these major areas, specific research goals have been identified. Genetic exploitation and improvement are considered to be an Hltegral part of the many approaches that need to be merged into a single management package.
