Abstract: Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is an important oilseed crop in India. It also known as peanut and earthnut. It belongs to leguminoceae family. In India, groundnut was introduced in India by Portuguese during first half of the sixteenth century. Groundnut occupies first rank in oilseed crop in India with respect to area and production. In India the area under groundnut crop is 4.19 million hectares with production of 5.82 million tonnes and productivity of 1341 kg per hectare. In Maharashtra, Groundnut grown on an area of 0.43 million hectares with the production of 0.49 million tonne and productivity is 1047 kg per hectare. In Hingoli, the area under summer groundnut crop was 4600 million hectare, 4000 million tonnes and 872 kg per hectare during 2010-2011, respectively. Multistage sampling design was adopted in selection of district, tehsil, villages and summer groundnut growers. Summer groundnut growers were stratified into two groups like TAG-24 (48) and SB-11 (48). In all 96 summer groundnut growers were selected for study. The techniques like growth rate analysis, tabular analysis, functional analysis and frequency and percentage analysis were use to analyze the data in present study. In order to determine profitability of wheat, costs and returns are important aspects. It is concluded that growth rate for area, production and productivity was negative and non-significant It summarized the socio-economic characteristics of groundnut grower as under age of TAG-24 and SB-11 groundnut grower were more than 35 year in both the cases family size was more than 4 members. Land holding of TAG-24 groundnut grower was 2.88 hectares while that of SB-11 grower was 2.70 hectares. Area under groundnut for TAG-24 grower had 0.93 hectares while that of SB-11 grower has 0.73 hectares. It observed that groundnut grower is giving highly important to soybean crop in cropping pattern on both TAG-24 and SB-11 grounndnut farms. Irrigation and hired human labour were found major item of expenditure in both cases of groundnut Per hectare, net profit was Rs 52593.36 and Rs 16189.28 in TAG-24 and SB-11 groundnut. TAG-24 was higher profitable that SB-11. Output-input ratio of TAG-24 was 1.62 while that of SB-11 was 1.19. In TAG-24, elasticity of production of area under groundnut, hired human labour, nitrogen, phosphorous and irrigation were significant In SB-11, elasticity of production of area under groundnut, hired human labour, phosphorous and irrigation were significant. In general producer’s share in consumer’s rupee was higher in channel-in as compared to other marketing channel and net price received by producer was higher in channel-111 than other channel of marketing. In general, Irregular load supply of electricity was major constraint and proper utilization of available water was suggested by groundnut growers.
