Higher than average yields are expected for 2020/2021 groundnut sector in Senegal. The planting season runs from mid-May to July and the harvest runs from September to the end of October; it is therefore in progress. This year plantings were delayed by the late arrival of the rains during the month of May. With this 1.4 metric ton expected per hectare, Senegal ranks third among African peanut producers, behind Nigeria and Sudan. In 2020/21 West Africa would represent 60% of African production and 15.3% of world production.
