    Tropical Legumes-II is a joint initiative of three international agricultural research centres, viz. ICRISAT (chickpea, groundnut and pigeonpea), IITA (cowpea & soybean), and CIAT (common bean) that aims to increase productivity and production of legumes and the income of poor farmers in SSA and SA by 15 percent, with improved varieties. This is an excellent book on a subject which has become one of the most important in tropical agriculture. The potential usefulness of forage legumes in the tropics is vast. Enormous areas of grazing sustain a very low level of animal production since seasonal rains allow plant growth and a corresponding reasonable quality of herbage for only part of the by:

    The leaves of many grain legumes are cooked as spinach and thus such species are also leafy vegetables. Some grain legumes are also sources of oil and a few even produce edible tubers. Tropical legumes that produce dry, edible seeds (pulses) are numerous. Pulse seeds contain one or more toxic substances. Tropical forage legumes: harnessing the potential of Desmanthus and other genera for heavy clay soils Ahmad, Nazeer, Lazier, John R This book explores the importance of heavy clay soils to agricultural productivity in the tropics and subtropics and the identification of adapted, productive forage legumes for this environment.

    A legume (/ ˈ l ɛ ɡ j uː m, l ə ˈ ɡ j uː m /) is a plant in the family Fabaceae (or Leguminosae), or the fruit or seed of such a plant (also called a pulse, especially in the mature, dry condition).Legumes are grown agriculturally, primarily for human consumption, for livestock forage and silage, and as soil-enhancing green -known legumes include alfalfa, clover, beans, peas. Among the grain legumes, soybeans are the most extensively used in animal feed. Forage legumes are commonly provided to animals in grass-legume mixtures. In the temperate regions, clovers, medics, trefoils, and vetches are important. In tropical and subtropical pastures,Stylosanthes, Pueraria, Lablab, Desmodium, and other tropical.

Covering over four decades of international research, Tropical Forage Legumes. While tropical grasses are often of poor nutritive value, both browse and pasture legumes may have a higher protein content, palatability and digestibility.

This volume focuses on the use of tropical browse, pasture and grain legumes in animal nutrition. It is written by leading authorities from the UK, Australia, India and : Hardcover.

As a result, legumes generally require no additional nitrogenous fertilizer for average growth. This is advantageous because commercial nitrogenous fertilizers are now extremely expensive for peasant farmers.

This report demonstrates how farmers in developing countries, by using leguminous plants, can grow useful crops while avoiding that expense.

Legumes are members of the family Fabaceae, a diverse group of bean-pod bearing plants ranging from small annual herbs, through woody shrubs to giant perennial trees.

Fabaceae is the third largest flowering plant family after orchids (Orchidaceae) and asters (Asteraceae), comprising around genera species (Doyle and Luckow ). The book presents extensive coverage of the technical aspects of forage-based agriculture in the tropics.

It addresses both the scientific aspects of this technology and its practical application. The editors integrate the extensive research on tropical forage species in the western hemisphere with that of global research efforts. The book captures the societal impact of the Tropical Legumes project that successfully worked towards developing an efficient seed delivery system for grain legume crops in the semi-arid tropics of Africa and Asia.

The stories in this edition focus on a couple of key areas and crops ­– groundnut and common beans in Tanzania and Uganda. Legumes are a great source of several important nutrients, including a wide array of vitamins and minerals.

Although the exact nutrient profile can vary for specific types of legume, most are generally high in folate, manganese, iron and magnesium, along with an assortment of other key micronutrients. Legumes are also a great plant-based source.Abstract. Many tropical soils are limited in their ability to produce crops due to severe deficiency in soil nitrogen.

Agronomists readily agree that the legumes, with their ability to reduce atmospheric nitrogen to a usable form of nitrogen, should be an important component of tropical by:
