Quality parameters of pulses (dry food legume seeds) are described. These include physical, physico-chemical and nutritional parameters. Chemical and nutritional composition of the major pulses are discussed, together with the relative heritability of some of the most important quality characteristics, and the advisability of attempting to breed for them. A strategy is outlined for the selection of pulses on the basis of quality factors which enables reduction of 10 000 early generation lines to three advanced lines in five selection steps.
