Groundnut Sub - Programme

    Groundnut research work ha been going on in the Institute since early 50's resulting in the release of many groundnut varieteis adapted to the various ecological zones. Currently, the Institute has released 24 varieties (SAMNUT 1-24), some of these varieties are dual purpose, yielding high quality seed and also forage which is very important for livestock farmers.

    The Institute also has developed cultural practices that increase both yield and quality of groundnut. There is a 1.6ha groundnut maximum yield trial to show case the technologies developed by IAR for groudnut production
