Legumes in rice-based cropping systems.
A WOCAT factsheet regarding: Legumes in rice-based cropping systems. In India, 29 percent of the area cropped with rice remains fallow during the dry "rabi" season. This oﬀers the opportunity to improve farm income and soil health by introducing legumes especially lentils. Diversifying the cropping system in such a way results in higher farm income due to additional crop produce and reduced carbon and water footprints.
