Groundnut is in the legume family, a group of plants that can increase the amount of nitrogen available in the soil

Since nitrogen is very important for the growth of all crops, groundnut is often planted to improve the quality of soil by adding nitrogen

Even if groundnut is not the main crop of interest, it can be useful in crop rotation and intercropping systems to cover the ground and improve the soil for other crops
