This book provides a comprehensive review of current lentil research. It contains 26 chapters covering topics on lentil global production, supply and demand; origin, phylogeny, domestication and spread; plant morphology, anatomy and growth habit; agroecology and adaptation; genetic resources collection, characterization, conservation and documentation; genetic enhancement for yield and yield stability; breeding for short season environments; improvement in Developed Countries; advances in molecular research; breeding and management to minimize the effects of drought and improve water use efficiency; soil nutrient management; cropping systems; biological nitrogen fixation and soil health improvement; mechanization; disease, pest and weed management; seed quality; postharvest processing and value addition; and food preparation and use. The last chapter presents field-based evidence of adoption of improved lentil cultivars from two cases: Bangladesh and Ethiopia.

Lentils: Potential Resources for Enhancing Genetic Gains describes the evolutionary aspects and agronomic potential of this important pulse with emphasis placed on wide hybridization, including molecular aspects and future breeding strategies. The existing variability among cultivated germplasm has been exploited to reach a desirable level of productivity. However, to attain further breakthroughs in increasing yield and improving stability in future cultivars, new sources of genes/alleles need to be identified and incorporated into cultivated varieties. This book provides specific use information, including wild lentil germplasm utilization, thus allowing for the selection of transgressive interspecific recombinants that can be adapted to specific environments. Identifies breeding resources and the agronomic value assessed for specific traits of interest Presents marker assisted breeding work and genomic resources Describes strategies for wild lentils using wide hybridization Features key breeding strategies

Young Lentil wants to learn to sing, but no matter how hard he tries he can’t sing on key. He can’t even pucker his lips to whistle! So Lentil learns to play the harmonica instead and beautifully carries his tune through the winding streets of Alto, Ohio. Lentil masters his craft just as the beloved Colonel Carter returns to town and the Alto residents decide to plan a special celebration. But Old Sneep, the grouchiest man in town, doesn’t want anyone celebrating Colonel Carter’s homecoming. When Old Sneep stops the welcoming parade in its tracks, Lentil’s music turns out to be just what Alto needs. Robert McCloskey, the Caldecott-winning author and illustrator of Make Way for Ducklings, brings readers this delightful two color picture book.
