I was able to join a Saskatchewan Pulse Growers virtual variety update on Peas, Faba Beans, Lentils and Chickpea varieties.
They talked about variety acre trends, and new pea varieties, new lentil varieties, new faba beans varieties, and new chickpea varieties.
They also talked about Aphanomyces root rots breeding as well as root rots in general. It will take them 10 years for breeders just to get the traits into our lines plus any time to cross with current high yielding lines.
Pulse Canada also talked about how each variety of peas has a different protein fractionation profile, fat profile and the geographic area it was grown in will change its nutrient profile as well year to year.
