Abstract:

Leafy vegetables play a major role in our daily dietary food chart. These nourish us with several nutrients like vitamins and minerals which help in combating against various diseases. Nearly one thousand species of plants with edible leaves are known. Out of which many of them are either grown locally or in rural-tribal areas. On the other hand many are unaware about their existence as well as importance. This paper has been focused on some of them which are widely distributed in various parts of our country India which are categorised as under-exploited. They are Sesbania grandiflora, Talinum triangulare, Ipomea aquatic, Chenopodium album, Moringa oleifera, Cucurbita moschata, Marselia quadrifolia, Alternanthera sessilis. These have been found in the Southern and eastern regions of India. These crops need to be expanded quickly for proper nutritional security and prevention against harmful diseases.
