Canada Injects $8.3 M Into Pulse Industry To Boost Productivity, Build Markets

April 8, 2010: 08:08 AM EST
Pulse Canada, the industry association that represents growers, processors and traders of pulse crops, will receive an investment of up to $8.3 million from the Canadian government for research, innovation and market development. The idea behind the investment, according to Canada’s Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, is to build a more profitable and competitive pulse industry by helping producers improve productivity and access new markets. The government funding will support a $7 million research project involving industry, government and university scientists to develop improvements in productivity and nutrition, and a $1.3 million market development project to build and support new demand for pulses around the world. In 2009, Canada exported more than $2 billion of pulse products to 150 countries, accounting for about 40 percent of the global pulse trade.
