Pigeon pea, a neglected legume is a rich source of protein enhancing local staples through fortification and in addressing malnutrition. This work aims to enlighten local farmers in a maize growing area on the nutritional and health importance of pigeon pea, to train them on various ways of utilization and to evaluate farmers acceptability and perception of the crop. The method involves informing the farmers on the benefits of pigeon pea, demonstrating processing methods for developed nutritionally improved products and assessing the farmers’ sensory acceptability. Farmers showed high acceptability for the products and the willingness to plant pigeon pea.
