Groundnuts are a very important oilseed crop in China; production has increased rapidly in recent years. In 1990-93, the annual average area (3 035 600 ha), yield (2.2 t ha-1), and production (6 761 000 t), have all set records. Domestic consumption of crushed and edible groundnuts increases year by year. The main groundnut-producing areas are Shandong, Henan, Guangdong, Hebei, and Guangxi. In China, groundnuts are grown as a sole or an intercrop in spring, summer, and autumn.
