Foodstuff legumes are vital materials of human and animal foodstuff, offering top of the range proteins an important for a balanced vitamin. those plants additionally play an incredible function in low-input agricultural construction structures via solving atmospheric nitrogen. regardless of systematic and non-stop breeding efforts through legume researchers around the globe, enormous genetic profits haven't been completed. those concerns require speedy realization, and total, a paradigm shift is required in breeding techniques to bolster our conventional crop development courses. To this finish, Biology and Breeding of meals Legumes offers huge details on their background, beginning, evolution and botany, in addition to breeding targets and techniques, dietary development, business makes use of, post-harvest expertise and up to date advancements made via biotechnological intervention.
