High-oil yielding groundnut in Nigeria

Using improved varieties of groundnut for processing is helping meet demand for groundnut oil, boosting incomes and empowering women.

Interventions

  • ¬†Varieties SAMNUT 23 & SAMNUT 24 yield thrice as much oil as native groundnut.
  • ¬†ICRISAT promotes groundnut production technology in Yadakwari Community, Nigeria with Women Farmers Advancement Network (WOFAN).

Impacts

  • Up to 350 liters of groundnut oil produced per week
  • High demand for pure groundnut oil leads to profitable sale of oil (US$ 1.2/L)
  • Sale of kuli-kuli (groundnut snack) prepared by WOFAN fetches US$ 12 per bag.
