Abstract

With the creation of ICRISAT in 1972, a commitment to improve the neglected food crops of the semi-arid tropical poor was established. Pigeonpea - a shrublike legume contributing as diverse a set of products as food, fuel, forage, and enhanced soil fertility - presented a fascinating range of opportunities for improvement not found in many crops of the CGIAR
