Abstract

There are a number of underutilized legume crops (marama bean, bambara groundnut, cowpea, pigeon pea, yambean, and lablab) in Africa, which due to their rich nutritional profile, high adaptability to adverse climatic conditions, and ability to grow in poor soils are highly advantageous for sustainable cultivation.
