This Agrodok is based on a previous shorter edition, Soya. The text has been extended to include more practical information on growing and processing soya and other legumes into nutritious food products. We have included other legumes so that the information in the book will be useful in more areas.
Soya is a legume with many good qualities, and it can be used to improve farming systems. It can also be processed into products that contribute to the daily diet and to family income. In this new edition we devote extra attention to this crop. There are also many areas however where soya cannot be cultivated, but other legumes do grow well and have many of the same good qualities.
This Agrodok is intended to help farmers and extension workers to make choices that will work well under local conditions.
