Groundnut (Arachishypogaea) is an oilseed crop grown in West Bengal, India. These nuts are used as oil crops and grain legume crops. Most of the farmers cultivate the traditional and age-old varieties. As a result, the production and productivity are relatively low when compared with that of the recently cultivated varieties. In West Bengal condi...
