An attempt was made to study the growth in area, production and yield of groundnut in Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh state as the four districts of Rayalaseema viz., Ananthapur, Chittoor, Kurnool and Y.S.R Kadapa are contributing major groundnut area in the state. The study was based on crop area, production and yield data covering the years of 1967-68 to 2019-20 divided into three parts i.e., Part I includes 1967-68 to 1985-86, part II includes 1986-87 to 2000-01 and part three includes 2001-02 to 2019-20 based on the Pre Technology mission on oilseeds (TMO), TMO period and post liberalization period, Compound growth rate and decomposition analysis was employed. The results revealed that, the growth performance of groundnut in Rayalaseema region was declined over the years, particularly in Period III due to frequent drought spells, change climate scenario, crop shifts viz., redgram, castor and cotton etc.
