Groundnuts

Groundnuts are grown by almost all member farmers throughout the country. NASFAM’s groundnuts are machine graded and are produced in excess of 5000 tonnes a year amongst the varieties of CG7, Chalimbana and Chalimbana 2000. Besides low capacity processing levels, and sales to local buyers, NASFAM is able to export groundnuts to the regional and international markets.  These exports are closely monitored and presented on the fair market with low Aflatoxin infested stock. These stocks are normally stocked and normally machine sorted and sized into two sizes: 38-42 KPOs and 50-60 KPOs (kernel per pound).
