The Japanese see huge potential for UK pea flour as a protein rich alternative for wheat. Pulses are gluten-free, nutritious and do wonders for the soil, so why are peas and beans still an orphan crop and what can we do to boost the value-chain?
Leading researchers, growers and agronomists in the pea and bean arena will be presenting their latest findings at this heartening event on the Friday of Agri-Tech Week.
Our goal is to help the industry to bust the 12 tonne/ha glass ceiling and produce varieties that meet the growing market demand.
We are bringing together the might of ADAS, James Hutton, JIC, NIAB, PGRO, and Rothamsted Research for this event, which will include interactive demonstrations, presentations of the latest findings and breakout sessions to facilitate networking.
