|In sandy, soils, the crop is harvested by pulling up the plants to which the pods adhere by tough wiry stalks. However, on heavy soils bambara groundnuts are harvested by digging up just like true groundnuts. This can be done with a groundnut lifter, but as bambara groundnut is primarily a peasant crop they are usually lifted by hoes.
After lifting, they are left 5-7 days to dry and then stripped and stored in bins. Bambara groundnuts can be stored in shells for more than a year.
