Sudan is considered as one of the major export markets of the peanuts, it is used to be one of the world’s top exporters of peanuts, moreover Sudan’s western states produces 70% of the country’s groundnut supply. Since peanuts depend on rainfall to survive, devastating droughts in these regions have significantly affected the farmers abilities to produce high yields. It is an annual plant growing from 1.00 to 1.6 ft tall with opposite leaves and yellow pea flower-shaped flowers. Peanuts grow in light and require five months of warm weather with little rain and since the flower stalk elongates then bends until the ovary touches the ground then the ovary is pushed underground where the fruit develops into the peanut.
Peanut, Groundnut, Foul Sudani or Arachis Hypogea – those are the names for peanuts.
