Abstract:

In India, the leaves of a large number of wild and cultivated plants are used as leafy vegetables. They have a very high protective food value and are very easy to grow. The use of leafy vegetables as food has been formed an integral part of the culture and tradition of many indigenous communities of the world. It constitutes an essential component in the diet and food security of many tribal and local communities particularly people living around the forest fringe. In Chhattisgarh, the life and economy of the tribal and local people are intimately connected with the natural vegetation. Leafy vegetables play a major role in the nutritional requirement of the tribal and local population in remote parts of the Chhattisgarh. Leafy vegetables are not only important as food but it also fulfill the regular requirement of nutrients.
