Globally, cowpea is an important grain legume adapted and grown in dry areas of the tropics and subtropics. In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), cowpea plays an important role in both human nutritional and food security and income generation for farmers and food by:

Thus, grain legumes would play a crucial role in resource conservation, ecosystem balance, and in the sustainability of agricultural systems of South Asia. Extensive research has been conducted on several well-known legumes, notably soybean, which is the most economically important legume worldwide.

Grain legumes are the suitable candidate crop for diversification because of its inherent capacity to build up soil health and in conserving natural resources. There exists a large scope to introduce pulses as the second crop in million hectare areas of rice fallows in India, Bangladesh, and by: 3.

Harnessing Food Legumes for Climate-Smart Agriculture.

Food legumes offer myriad benefits for sustainable smallholder production systems. When used in crop rotations or intercropping, they can help increase levels of nitrogen in the soil, improving soil fertility, and subsequently crop productivity.

Tropical Legumes II (TL-II) is a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) sponsored project implemented by three International Agricultural Research Centers – ICRISAT, CIAT and IITA. TL-II aims to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the drought-prone areas of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and South Asia through improved productivity and production of six major grain legumes.
