    Consensus Document on the Biology of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata)

    This publication is a tool for environmental safety assessment of COWPEA varieties. This grain legume is an important staple crop in (sub)tropical regions, in Africa mainly. It can be genetically-engineered for resistance to herbicides, pests or diseases. Biology elements useful to biosafety evaluation are detailed, e.g. taxonomy, cultivation, reproduction, genetics, hybridisation, ecology, common pests and pathogens.
