Chickpeas, Peas, Beans and Lentils: An Inspiring Handbook for Beginners and Advanced Gardeners

The challenges of the 21st century in agriculture and food will lead to a revaluation of pulses. They are extremely versatile, can be grown in a wide range of environmental conditions, play an important role in organic agriculture because of their nitrogen fixing capacity, and are the basis for traditional and innovative dishes and foods. The aim of this book is to encourage the cultivation and consumption of pulses, which have been neglected in recent decades. It is aimed at farmers interested in sustainable farming, consumers concerned about environmental and health issues, and all professionals whose work involves some contact with food systems or gastronomy. The book provides an overview of consumption and production trends of leguminous crops, details on their cultivation, breeding and plant protection, and finally some general advice on the use, storage and preparation of legumes.
