By the middle of the nineteenth century, the largest area under groundnut cultivation was reported in South Arcot district of Madras State. A local businessman, Govindaiyer played a significant role in promoting the cultivation of groundnuts in the Madras provinceby introducing
double cropping and establishing oil extraction units.
