Pulses represent one of the most important food categories that have been extensively used as staple foods to cover basic protein and energy needs throughout the history of humanity. The problem of malnutrition and inadequate supply of protein poses a gigantic task to increase pulse production in India. This comprehensive book has been designed to provide sequential development and generation of information in science and technology of growing pulse crops. It aims to equip the students and researchers with the knowledge of research results to put those into practice for higher crop production. The book presents the varied production technologies available in growing pulse crops in different states of India. It provides information on importance of pulses in human nutrition, pulse production technologies, pest and disease resistance varieties, plant protection strategies in pulses, post harvest profile of pulses and mechanization in pulse production. It covers 13 different pulses, each one in a separate chapter. Primarily designed for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of agriculture, the book will also be beneficial to teachers, scientists and scholars in agriculture.
