Abstract:

Pulses are major sources of proteins among the vegetarians in India, and complement the staple cereals in the diets with proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. They contain 22-24 % protein, which is almost twice the protein in wheat and thrice that of rice. The productivity of pulses is declining year by year. The main cause for low productivity of pulses is that the crop is cultivated largely under energy starved rainfed as well as irrigated conditions, with lack of adequate soil moisture and in low fertile soils. It needs earnest attention in adoption of desirable production technologies. Hence, there is need to increase production and productivity of pulses in the country by more intensive interventions such as foliar application of macro and micronutrients which help to increase the production and productivity of pulses apart from increasing the protein content in the seeds.
