By M. Pottorff, J.D. Ehlers, C.A. Fatokun, P.A. Roberts and T.J. Close


Cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] exhibits a considerable variation in leaf shape. Although cowpea is mostly utilized as a dry grain and animal fodder crop, cowpea leaves are also used as a high-protein pot herb in many countries of Africa.Bill & Melinda Gates FoundationUnited States Agency for International DevelopmentPeer Revie
