Summary, etc. Cowpea Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp is a major food legume in West Africa. It is a major component of the farming system in Ghanai the grain and leaves are consumed by humans (Ahenkora et al. l998) and the fodder fed to livestock. A significant amount of work has been conducted on the use of cowpea as grain, resulting in the release of 10 cowpea varieties in Ghana. Only a few of these varieties have been widely adopted by farmers. Involving farmers during the goal setting, planning, and selection stages of crop development enhances the rate of adoption (Ahmkinders and Louwaars 1999). Following a series of planning workshops with farmers, they requested multi-purpose varieties (leaf, grain, fodder, and the ability to suppress weeds). A study was initiated to involve farmers in the planning, evaluation, and selection of a multi-purpose cowpea variety.
