The subtitle of this paper is: Recommendations for Expansion and Acceleration of Research to Increase Production of these High Protein Crops. The author identified the potential of food legumes in improving the nutritional status, and in particular, addressing the protein deficit problem of poor populations. Rather than a single central institute, Roberts proposed assignment of particular crops to other centers, including cow pea to IITA, pigeon pea to CIAT, chickpea to CIMMYT, soybean to CIAT or IITA, and groundnut (peanut) to IITA. Agenda item presented at TAC First Meeting, June-July 1971.
