The project aims to help alleviate rural poverty, improve livelihoods, and ensure food and nutritional security of poor smallholder farmers in Asia. It will focus on increasing the productivity and profitability of groundnut cultivation in Asia, through the development and deployment of new groundnut varieties that meet the needs of the farmers, traders and industry in partnership with national partners in Bangladesh, India, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. The project is expected to directly benefit National Agriculture Research Systems and ultimately poor smallholder groundnut farmers in the targeted countries.
