Abstract
The 68th UN General Assembly declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses (IYP) in November 2015. «Pulses can make a significant contribution to the solution of the problems of hunger, malnutrition, addressing environmental issues and improvement of human health», - said General UN secretary Ban Ki-moon in a written statement read out at the opening ceremony of the International Year of Pulses [1]. The IYP 2016 aims: ?To heighten public awareness of the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production aimed towards food security and nutrition ?To convey information about the value and methods of using pulses as part of the food system, their usefulness for soil fertility and to combat climate change, and to eradicate malnutrition. ?To encourage connections throughout the food chain that would better utilize pulse-based proteins, further global production of pulses, better utilize crop rotations and address the challenges in the trade of pulses. [2]. One of the main results of the year will be the establishment of the Global Database of FAO / INFOODS on the composition of food products from pulses. The article focuses on four pulses crops – peas, beans, lentils and chick-pea, which have significant differences in terms of planting and harvesting, processing properties, nutritional value, that allows us to include them in different rehabilitation units of crop rotation and thus greatly expand the planting area and total yield of these crops.
