Pulse crops are the subcategory of legumes that are harvested solely to eat the dry seed. They are a sustainable crop as they use non-renewable energy inputs of other crops which results in a remarkably small carbon footprint. They also play a crucial role in crop rotation and improve the sustainability of cropping systems. Owing to their high nutritional content, pulses are considered as an essential part of everyday nutrition. They are a rich source of fibre, proteins, amino acids and minerals. Apart from this, pulses also help to lower blood cholesterol levels, control blood glucose levels and provides satiation. They are currently grown in 173 countries globally and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.
