Getting vegetables throughout the year is obscure in rain feed area like Marathwada. Retention of nutrition from vegetables is important for health in absence of inadequate refrigeration facilities. Five different green leafy vegetables which are consumed by the peoples on large scale have been tried during the present piece of work.
