In India, about 80% of groundnut is processed into food (60%) or oil (40%). India exports groundnut to SE Asia for processing into edible oil. Demand for groundnut cake as livestock feed is negligible (Birthal et al. 2010). In WCA, 55% of groundnut production is used for subsistence and 33% is processed, mostly for oil (Ntare et al. 2004; Rusike et al. 2013). Groundnut haulms are used as fodder for livestock (Ndjeunga et al. 2010). In Nigeria, a bundle of haulms has the same value as 1 kg of groundnut grain (Samirereddypalle et al. 2017). In ESA, domestic consumption accounts for 60% of the production in Malawi (Tsusaka et al. 2016) and 80% in Uganda (Shiferaw et al. 2010). Malawi exports about 10% of the total produce (Tsusaka et al. 2016).
