Promising potential of pulse crops – research-based reasons and real-life lessons for adding pulse crops into crop rotation systems webinar

Wednesday, April 6, 2016
Starts at 2 pm Eastern/1 pm Central/Noon Mountain/11 am Pacific

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council.

Pulses is a broad term that includes multiple varieties of beans and peas:  dry beans, garbanzo beans, black-eyed peas, and lentils, to name a few. During the 2016 International Year of Pulses, as declared by the United Nations, interest in (and demand for) this nutritious crop as a raw ingredient and as a food additive is increasing. Widely produced in Canada, and growing in popularity to diversify crop production in the USA, pulses are used in rotation and as cover crops, and have the potential to add economic and other environmental benefits. The webinar speakers will explore the history, current uses, and outlook for pulses in North American agriculture, so that you can share about those opportunities with your clients.
