Various genetic divergence of indigenous leafy vegetable in Chhattisgarh, India: A review

Author(s): Saurabh, Tarun Kumar and Mrinal Kumar
Abstract: Vegetable crops are most sought crops the World over as they are essential items of food and nutrition both rich as well as poor. In India, the leaves of numerous cultivated and wild plants are consumed as vegetables, particularly in the state of Chhattisgarh. They are incredibly easy to grow, have a very high protective food value, and are abundant in minerals and vitamins. The livelihoods and economies of the local and tribal populations in remote sense region of Chhattisgarh are closely entwined with the natural vegetation. Many indigenous cultures around the world have included the usage of leafy greens as food into their culture and traditions. This study describes the 86 such leafy vegetables that the tribal and native people of Chhattisgarh consumed. The data was derived from a field ethno-botanical survey conducted in various part of Chhattisgarh. Throughout Chhattisgarh's many districts, there are about 44 tribal communities. Wild leafy vegetables (WLVs) are essential for ethnic communities' survival and serve as a source of revenue. However, scientific efforts, economic growth, biodiversity conservation and sustainable management paid just a passing attention to wild food plants.
