Abstract: Indiscriminate use of synthetic pesticides in the groundnut ecosystem lead to killing of useful organisms, contamination in the food chain, pollution in the air and water. Though neem, Azadirachta indica A. Juss. is indigenous to India, has been in limited use in the agricultural ecosystem. The potential of the neem as pesticides has been verified in groundnut crop by few researchers in India. The mortality of jassids, aphids, leaf miner in groundnut, action on hairy caterpillars are reported in literature. The negative aspects of neem as pesticides have also been reported. Integrated pest management includes a judicious blend of a multi-pronged approach either reducing the incidence or delaying the build up of the intensity of insect complex. So far, the work done in groundnut ecosystem has been reviewed in this article.
