Pulse Crops

North Dakota leads the nation in production of both dry pea and lentil. Because of the need for new varieties specifically adapted to ND, the 2007 North Dakota Legislature approved the establishment of a pulse crop breeding program at NDSU. This legislation provided two new positions: a pulse crop breeder stationed in Fargo and an assistant pulse crop breeder located in Minot. The position in Minot is advantageous because it gives the breeding program a strong presence and is centrally located in the main pulse growing region of ND. The main goal of this program is to develop new varieties of dry pea, lentil, and chickpea for ND and surrounding area producers. Experiments conducted in Minot and the surrounding region will include variety trials, early and advanced yield trials, disease screening nurseries, and single plant/row selections. Utilization of onsite greenhouse space to recombine favorable traits will continue.
