More Than A Sprouting Seed
Known by a variety of names throughout the world, including chickpea and chana, Cicer arietinum has been one of the most popularly domesticated crops ever. The garbanzo bean is widely sown as a culinary staple throughout much of Asia, with nearly 70% of the world's production coming from India. Recently, the garbanzo bean has made a resurgence as a viable nitrogen-fixing cover crop able to be sown as a beneficial companion plant or tilled back into the soil as an all-natural organic green mulch. Similar to Daikon radish and mustards, garbanzo seeds grow a deep taproot that can help prepare fields and grows spaces that have gone untouched in years or have never been cultivated.
