Leguminosae or Fabaceae is the third-largest family of flowering plants, containing up to 650 genera and 18 000 species. Over 4000 species are native to North America, most being members of the bean subfamily, occurring as scattered, secondary components of native vegetation.
The PULSE CROPS comprise a second very important group of large-seeded, introduced legumes. Most pulses grown in Canada are cleaned and exported for human consumption. The dry bean is the most important Canadian pulse crop. The dry pea or field pea is the second most important crop, followed by LENTILS and FABA BEANS and SOYBEAN.
