    Benefit of Pulses in Agriculture 2017
    Also available in:

    Key messages are the following: 1. Including pulses in crop rotations reduces the risks of soil erosion and depletion; 2. Many pulses are drought-resistant; 3. Pulses are able to increase biodiversity as they are able to fix their own nitrogen into the soil, which increases soil fertility; 4. Multiple cropping systems, such as intercropping or rotating crops with pulses, have a higher soil carbon sequestration potential than mono-cropping systems; 5. Pulses have a long shelf life, which means they can be stored for long periods without losing their nutritional value; 6. For smallholder farmers, pulses are an important source of affordable proteins that are cheaper than animal sourced protein.

    FAO Kids: Pulses contribute to food security 2021
    This comic strip, marking the International Year of Pulses (IYP) 2016, teaches children that pulses are a powerful ally in achieving food security. They are economically affordable, can be grown in dry environments, and have a low food wastage footprint, as they can be stored for long periods without spoiling. The comic strip is part of the series “FAO Kids”. The FAO kids are five superheroes with the mission to eradicate hunger and malnutrition, eliminate poverty and ensure sustainable use of n atural resources in order to make the world a better place.
