Development of Improved Cowpea Cultivars with Increased Yield Potential, Tolerance to Biotic and Abiotic Stresses, and Having Grain Quality Traits Preferred by Farmers and Consumers for Three Target Agro-Ecological Zones, the Sahel and the Sudan/Guinea Savanna Regions in West Africa and the U.S. Southwest

On-farm cowpea yields in West Africa average 240 kg/ha even though potential yields in the region, as demonstrated in on-station and on-farm trials, are often five […]
