Groundnuts are a valuable food crop, oil source and animal feed. Adapted to a wide variety of soil and climatic conditions, they are grown in many tropical, subtropical and continental temperate regions. In developing countries, groundnuts are usually only one component of a multiple cropping system, and appropriate pest control measures vary considerably with the local situation. Groundnuts, in NRl's Pest Control Series, provides detailed information about pest control options both pre- and post-harvest. Identification, biology and distribution of pests are included and the economic and management consequences of currently available control techniques are discussed. This book is a completely rewritten edition of Pans Manual 2 and is intended for use by researchers, extension and development workers in regions where groundnuts are, or could be, grown.
