Scene-setting talks outlined the new market opportunities for pea protein, fibre and starch as nutritional and functional food ingredients, the constraints on cultivation and the external impacts on value of the crop. Then the delegates were asked to discuss the challenges and identify the priorities for further knowledge creation.

Seven key themes emerged:

  1. Soil health and improved rhizobia performance
  2. Crop nutrition
  3. Good farm practice and evidence-based technology
  4. Alternative pest control
  5. Alternative disease control
  6. Breeding for improved plant physiology and growth
  7. Development of new food markets

A detailed report was created capturing the information delivered in the workshop, it is available to read here.
