Welcome to AICRP on Groundnut

Groundnut the premier oilseed in the Country with an area of 6 million ha. and a production of about 7.5 million ton. Looking to its importance and potential for further contribution to the oilseeds kitty, groundnut outreach research activities were delineated from the Directorate of Oilseeds Research (DOR), Hyderabad during 1992 and a separate of “All India Coordinated Research Project on Groundnut (AICRP-Groundnut)” was established during VIII-Five year plan (1992-97).  To ensure effective interaction with the scientists engaged in basic and strategic research on groundnut at the national level, the Project Coordinating Unit was placed at the National Research Centre for Groundnut (NRCG), Junagadh. With this development, the AICRP-Groundnut Research activities were restructured, reorganized and strengthened to deal with the problems limiting groundnut production and productivity in the country.
