Faba bean, also called a broad bean, is one of the underutilized crops in India. It is a very nutritious crop that can be used as a pulse or a vegetable. The protein content can go up to 35% to 40%, which is much higher than most pulses. It has a considerable amount of vitamins and minerals. It also has medicinal properties. Significant development has been taking place in the faba bean very recently in India. A lot of work can be done on this crop, which helps in sustainable farming and managing malnutrition.
