An axial flow groundnut thresher was developed which could be operated by tractor p.t.o. or 12 hp diesel engine. The thresher was tested on 2 groundnut varieties, (Banki bunch type and NC-334 spreading type) for 3 crop moisture levels (just after digging, after 2 days sun drying and after 4 days sun drying). Two days sun drying, when the moisture content was about 20%, gave the best results.
