Pulses are generally the edible seeds of grain legumes. They are also called dried beans or peas. Pulses are very rich in nutrients, with high protein levels (double that of wheat and three times that of rice). They are also rich in complex carbohydrates, micronutrients, and B-vitamins, which are vital parts of a healthy diet, and making them one of the most important sources of nutrition in the world. In this course, you will learn about the production systems and uses of important cool and warm season pulse crops grown around the world.
