  • Includes a complete analysis of production from nutrients and pest management to harvest and storage

The lentil is one of the first foods to have been cultivated and has maintained excellent socio-economic value for over 8,000 years. The ancient crop is now a crop for modern times in both developing and eveloped countries today.

The international market in recent years has increased significantly and this crop is gaining an important place in cropping systems under different ecologies. It is grown in over 35 countries, has a broad range of uses around the world, and the different seed and plant types adapted to an increasingly wide range of ecologies makes this comprehensive volume even more important today.

This book covers all aspects of diversity, breeding and production technologies, and the contents include;

  • Origin, adaptation, ecology and diversity
  • Utilization, nutrition and production technologies.
  • Genetic enhancement, mutation and wild relatives
  • Breeding methods and lensomics achievements
  • Productivity, profitability and world trade

This book presents the most comprehensive and up to date review of research on lentil production systems, biotic and abiotic stresses management, quality seed production, storage techniques and lentil growing around the world. This book will be of great value to legume breeders, scientists, nutritionists, academic

researchers, graduate students, farmers, traders and consumers in the developed and the developing world.
