[ Gift of Dr Abram Bicksler Jan 24, 2023 ] 

Pulses have a long history in sub-Saharan Africa due to their multiple benefits. Pulses, and legumes in general, can play an important role in agriculture thanks to their ability to biologically fix atmospheric nitrogen and to enhance the biological turnover of phosphorus. Indeed, they could become the cornerstone of sustainable agriculture in Africa. This publication reviews promising strategies to support the cultivation and utilization of pulses on smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa. The review is part of the legacy of the International Year of Pulses (IYP), which sought to recognize the contribution that pulses make to human well-being and the environment.
