Dolichos Bean - Lablab purpureus (L.) Sweet

Dolichos bean is an ancient legume crop widely grown throughout the world for its vegetable or pulse for human consumption or as animal forage or feed. The research efforts made on this crop, besides being scanty, are very much widespread. The volume of literature available on this crop, though small, is very much scattered. To overcome this lacuna, it is necessary to compile all the available information at the global level to an extent possible. The website on Dolichos bean aims to compile whatever the results have emanated from research efforts made by scientists at the global level. This would enable an easy access to all those who are interested such as scientists, students, planners and science managers and thus effectively serve the entire community interested in this crop and its future development for the benefit of the coming generations and livestock.
