Perspectives on legume production and use in European agriculture

Christine Watson, Frederick Stoddard
Posted: 01.06.2021
Grain legumes currently cover less than 2% of European arable area, and estimates of forage legume coverage are little greater. Imported legume protein, however, is an important livestock feed additive. This article introduces the varied roles of legumes in cropping systems and in food and feed value chains.

This article is one out of 15 book chapters. All chapters of the book are available on the Hub.
