J.J. Doyle, in Encyclopedia of Genetics, The legume or bean family (Leguminosae or Fabaceae), with over genera and 18 species, is the third largest family of flowering plants (angiosperms), behind only orchids (Orchidaceae) and the composite or sunflower family (Asteraceae or Compositae).

Morphologically and ecologically, it is a very diverse family, ranging from tiny alpine. 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.

grain types or seed color also affects marketability. Forage legumes have been the foundation for dairy and meat production for centuries (Russelle, ).

When properly managed, they are rich sources of protein, fiber, and energy. Even in intensive animal and milk production, where grain crops are major feed sources, forage legumes are.

Types of Legumes. Legumes and Nutrition. Grain crops produce edible, dry seeds, which can be stored for long periods of time. True cereal grains are members of the grass family. Other grain-like crops are called pseudo-cereals. Most grains are good sources of protein, carbohydrates, and B vitamins.

Cultivars vary widely in their seasonal and climatic adaptations. Grain crops are usually planted at the beginning of the wet season and. GRAIN AND PASTURE PRODUCTION. Grain and forage legumes are grown on some million Ha, or 12% to 15% of the Earth's arable surface (TableI).They account for 27% of the world's primary crop production, with grain legumes alone contributing 33% of the dietary protein nitrogen (N) needs of humans (Vance et al., ).Under subsistence conditions, the percentage of legume Cited by:   Besides this, the low application rate of the N fertilizer to grain legumes has the advantage of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and groundwater pollution.

Thus, grain legumes would play a crucial role in resource conservation, ecosystem balance, and in Cited by: 3. The CGIAR Research Program on Grain Legumes and Dryland Cereals (GLDC) have successfully developed biofortified lentil, groundnut, sorghum, pearl millet and finger millet to augment nutrition and health in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa through : Shiv Kumar Agrawal.

In Asia and Africa, a substantial portion of the grain legumes is consumed after having been milled for removal of the husk and splitting, or after some form of processing. However, most of the commercial technologies available for this purpose are either obsolete or inadequate and result in heavy losses due to breakage and powdering of the grain.

Cereals and grain legumes are the most important part of human diet and nutrition. The expansion of grain legumes with improved productivity to cater the growing population’s nutritional security is of prime importance and need of the hour.

Rice fallows are best niche areas with residual moisture to grow short-duration legumes, thereby achieving intensification. The grain legumes are grown mainly as pulses providing food for humans, while pasture legumes are cultivated to feed domestic animals.

Based on plant utility and economy, legumes are categorized into major and minor species. Major legumes are popular and common with well-established domestication and cultivation, agronomic practices Author: Jacob Popoola, Omena Ojuederie, Conrad Omonhinmin, Adegoke Adegbite. grain legumes [remove] 2; markets 2; production 2; soil 2; Improved varieties 1; South Asia 2; Africa 1; Asia 1; Sub-Saharan Africa 1; Language.

Patancheru, A.India: ICRISAT. The role of the Asian Grain Legumes Network (AGLN) coordinated by the nternational Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is. The results show spatial distribution of rice fallows in South Asia, which are identified as target domains for sustainable intensification of short-duration grain legumes, fixing the soil nitrogen and increasing incomes of small-holder by: 1.

In the first of five volumes, scientists from Australia, North America, Asia, and Africa explain the genetic resources of grain legumes and how they are being used to improve yields, reduce disease, resist pests, and alter other agronomic traits of the mostly widely grown and consumed legumes: the common bean, pea, pigeonpea, cowpea, faba bean.

Shattering is a problem in comparison with other grain legumes, and can be particularly serious under conditions of frequent wetting and drying. Ricebean is a neglected crop, cultivated on small areas by subsistence farmers in hill areas of Nepal, northern and northeastern India, and parts of southeast : Fabaceae.

Beans are hearty and versatile – perfect for soups, salads, burritos and more. Explore new ways to use them for any meal. Cook up a steaming pot of the Neelys' baked beans and you won't be sorry.

Domestication of these legumes spread throughout South America and as far north as Mexico over the following several centuries. By B.C., the soybean was domesticated by farmers in northern China.

By the first century A.D., it had spread to many parts of Asia, including India and Japan.

In North Africa and Western Asia, rotation of wheat with pulses – including chickpeas, lentils and faba beans – is practised increasingly in rainfed wheat production areas, especially in soils with low levels of nitrogen. Legumes diversify production, enrich the soil through biological nitrogen fixation, enhance water-use efficiency, and.

The beneficial effects of legumes in maintaining and improving soil fertility in different crop production systems are well known. Despite this knowledge, legume cultivation has declined in many agricultural systems, including the rice­ based cropping systems in tropical Asia. The decline in legume cultivation wasFile Size: 8MB.

The peanut, also known as the groundnut, goober (US), or monkey nut (UK), and taxonomically classified as Arachis hypogaea, is a legume crop grown mainly for its edible seeds.

It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers. It is classified as both a grain legume and, due to its high oil content, an oil : Fabaceae.

WHEAT/LEGUMES FACT SHEET 4 ago in Western Asia and North Africa. Typical rainfed wheat-based rotations include grain legumes, such as chickpeas, lentils and faba beans, and the forage legumes vetch, berseem clover and Medicago species. Choosing the right legume for a specific wheat farming system is extremely important, as.

Legumes are valued worldwide as a sustainable and inexpensive meat alternative and are considered the second most important food source after cereals. Legumes are nutritionally valuable, providing proteins (20–45%) with essential amino acids, complex carbohydrates (±60%) and dietary fibre (5–37%).

Legumes also have no cholesterol and are generally low in fat, with ±5% energy from fat Cited by: 6.Most domesticated legumes are valued primarily for seeds, yet the leaves of many grain legumes equal or exceed the protein content of their seeds on a dry weight basis.

Because leaves are produced earlier and in much greater volume than seeds, the protein productivity is higher-about 15 times better for cowpea and times better for winged.Cool season grain legumes including pea, faba bean, lentil, chickpea, and grass pea are extensively grown in many parts of the world.

They are a primary source of proteins in human diet. This volume deals with the most recent advances in genetics, genomics, and breeding of these crops.
