The development of pulses in Western Australia has undergone tremendous advances over the past 12 years. From a tiny industry in the early 1990’s where the knowledge of both scientists and farmers was very limited, we now have a robust industry with production packages and improved varieties for all the grain legumes species that are well suited to our environment.
This book, which is both comprehensive and practical, collates much of the information gathered through pulse research and commercial experience over the past 10 years and will be valuable to all pulse growers, agronomists, students and industry advisors alike. The knowledge presented in this book has resulted from the dedicated efforts of scientists and industry specialists in Western Australia, working hand-in-hand with leading farmers, together with generous funding from the State Government and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC).
