Three taluks having highest area under groundnut cultivation were selected. Four villages from each taluks were selected and from each village ten farmers were randomly selected. Thus, the sample size of the study comprises of 120 farmers. The data collection had been done with the help of a structured interview schedule. The study revealed that 65.83 per cent of farmers had high perception about groundnut production technologies.
