Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is a leguminous oilseed crop cultivated in the semi-arid and subtropical regions of the world. It is grown in nearly 100 countries in six continents between 40o N and S of the equator in nearly 24.6 m ha, with a production of 41.3 m.t. and productivity of 1676 kg ha-1 during 2014-15. China, India, Nigeria, the USA, and Myanmar are the leading groundnut producing countries in the world. Asia with 11.6 m ha (47.15%) and Africa with 11.7 m ha (47.56%) hold a maximum global area under groundnut. Developing countries in Asia, Africa, and South America account for over 97 percent of worldgroundnut area and 95 percent of total production. However, the productivity of Asia (2217 kg ha-1) and Africa (929 kg ha-1) is very poor as compared to America (3632 kg ha-1) (FAO, STAT, 2015). Globally 50 percent of groundnut produce is used for oil extraction, 38 percent for confectionary use and 12 percent for seed purpose. In India, about 80 percent is used for oil extraction, 11 percent as seeds, 8 percent as direct food and one percent for export to other countries.
