Cowpea, Vigna unguiculata, is one of two tropical legumes that are important, and inexpensive, sources of dietary protein in India, Brazil and Sub-Saharan Africa. It is consumed as dry seeds, fresh southernpeas, green pods or leaves. Cowpea forage is used to feed livestock in the Sahel and Sudan Savannah regions of Africa. Breeding for resistance More...
