Pulses have rapidly gained importance in the United States over the past decade. Expansion of pulses acreage, especially dry peas, their increased frequency in crop rotations, combined with a series of cool-wet growing seasons in many areas of United States and other countries across the globe has resulted in numerous reports of root, seedling, and foliar diseases in grower fields. Pulses are, however, valued for their nitrogen fixing ability and play a key role in crop rotation.
  PULSE INFO provides information on leguminous crops grown in different parts of United States and other countries across the globe. ┬áThe pulses on this website:
  • Dry/ Field peas (Pisum sativum)
