Pulses are a key commodity category of crops that supply high-quality protein to the country’s mainly vegetarian population, supplementing grain proteins. India is the world’s largest producer of pulses, accounting for 30% of worldwide manufacture and consumption. In India, almost all types of pulse crops are grown. As a result, India has maintained its status as the world’s leading producer of pulses. In 2018-19, India produced 19.27 million tons, making it the world’s greatest producer. This paper investigates the growth trend, yield, and output value of pulses grown in India.
