The overall cost of production was Rs. 46026.11 on cost C3 basis. The gross income per hectare in cultivation of groundnut was Rs. 89712.17. The net income was workout Rs. 43086.06. However, return on per rupee with rental value owned land was 2.13 and without rental value 2.22. The study of constraints in production of the groundnut crop revealed that all the production problems were common in the study area. The timely not availability of labour, irrigation supply, electricity, lack of storage facility at farm level, weeding problem, unawareness of the seed rate were the major constraints identified in production of oilseed crops
