About The Book Pulse Crop Production
Book Summary:

Rich in protein, pulses or grain legumes form a very important source of food. The problem of malnutrition and inadequate supply of protein poses a gigantic task to increase pulse production in many countries. 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 principles and technologies available in growing pulse crops in different states of India. It provides introductory knowledge of the basics of pulse production, factors limiting production, trends of research in India and the importance of pulses in human nutrition. All together, it covers 15 pulses, each one in a separate chapter. All the pulses have been elaborately discussed based on advanced research results beginning with climate and soil requirements, seedbed preparation, technologies related to sowing, manuring and fertilizer use, water management, cropping systems, weed management and crop protection. In addition, each chapter ends with a good number of references followed by a question bank.
