Controlling diseases in ground nuts starts from the preparation and seed selection stages. Do not grow ground nuts in fields with a history of termites.
Ensure that the land was ‘rotated’ with another crop the previous season, to keep off diseases.
Grow new varieties, like Serenut 2, which is resistant to stress, such as the common rosette disease.
Plant in the rainy season to avoid the low rains, which makes groundnuts susceptible to diseases.
