The present book is outcome of valuable contributions made by various scientists and researchers working on pulse crops in diverse agro-ecosystems of the country. This book has comprehensive coverage of advanced production technologies in the form of 17 chapters that provided the technological back-up to make the country self-sufficient in pulses production. This book would serve as an information source for all R&D personal involved in the promotion of pulses in the country. The editor is sincerely thankful to all the contributors for their valuable chapters of this book, thereby sharing their experiences with the readers. Contents: 1.
