A High-Protein Crop for the Tropics
Second Edition 1981


WARNING: (original 1981 Warning in the book) In the Ivory Coast, ludonesia, and elsewhere, virus diseases and nematodes that severely limit winged bean yields have been discovered (see Appendix A). The viruses are seed-borne, and until uncertainties over the potential spread of these diseases are resolved, precautions should be taken with seed introductions, and the widespread exchange of uncertified seed should be curtailed.
