ASPA was the subsector established in the groundnut marketing as a consultative apex institution to coordinate the purchasing activities of those who are in the groundnut sector.
This was designed to know how many tons each stakeholder was ready to purchase. Unfortunately, since 2013, ASPA has stopped its activities because of the withdrawal of its MOU with Government. Will the new Government sign a new MOU? Time will tell!! As it stands farmers are still in the dark, regarding the price of their crops.
