Abstract: The patterns of the use of technology are a major area of study for enhancing the yields as well as productivity levels of the groundnut crop as well as its impact on farmers. Therefore, it is essential to analyse the technological innovations and how they have helped in realizing the goals. Scientists have invented several kinds of techniques of groundnut production to raise the yields of the crop. Each and every technology has its own unique contribution towards increasing the yield which can have an effect on the production costs as well as the overall income of the farmers. Extension and research institutions play a key role in the transfer of technology to the farmers and their adoption of the same. Studying the different technologies used by farmers will help in assessing their overall effects. The resulting analysis provides an insight into the levels of adoption as well as the effectiveness of the technologies of production presently in use. This research will also help scientists and technicians develop new technologies on an as-needed basis for use of farmers in areas where they can maximize productivity and net income while minimizing the production costs. Therefore, it is essential in this regard to do a study and assess the perceived impact of different technologies using various indicators such as cultivation costs, yield and net income of groundnut production
