Pulse ResearchThe Research program at the USADPLC / APA seeks to increase thebody of research on health/nutrition, functionality, and production/ PLANT BREEDING & GENETICS Improved varieties for Improved Productivity Improving pulse crop productivity, disease resistance, adaptation and consumer value. The USADPLC funded four major breeding projects supported by USDA: spring lentils, spring dry peas, chickpeas and autumn sown pulses (winter peas). Each program is supported by the development of molecular markers to speed and improve variety development. Variety testing was done at 7 locations in WA, 5 locations in ID and 9 locations in MT. Western Regional trials of elite lines and com- mercial varieties from the PNW are planted in MT and ND. • Funded breeding programs for all major market classes of lentil, dry pea and chickpea • Breeding programs are mature and active at all levels; from initial crosses, screening for multiple traits, advanced yield testing and product release • Genetic maps and molecule marker technology is coming online to assist with complex and difficult traits.USDA-ARS Plant Breeder, Rebecca • Autumn sown pulses focusing on adaption and food grade qualityMcGee • Chickpea variety development focused on large seed size plus early and uniformThe USDA ARS winter legume breeding maturityprogram focuses on breeding cold tol- • Lentil focused on adaptation, market class and disease resistanceerant peas and lentils.In the same program, Dr. George Van- • Dry peas focused on yield, seed quality and disease resistancedemark works with chickpea varieties, • Value added traits such as ingredient quality and nutrition are being added towhile Dr. Weidong Chen performs re- the breeding programssearch on pulse pathogens.PLANT BREEDING & GENETICSImproved varieties for Improved ProductivityActivities are divided between improving industry access to technical information and researching “basic” food science. Froma strategic perspective, funding of applied product innovation is best done by industry. One funded research project gavedetailed analysis of pea and rice protein function, solubility, pH optimization (all important to beverage creation) and gelformation and foam stability (important to processed foods).PULSE MILLING WORKSHOPOne example of product innovation outreach to industry was the Pulse Milling Workshop held in March 2017.

Pulse ResearchResearch projects from ND, MT and WSU as well as Canadian and French scientistsare coordinating efforts to battle the Root Rot Complex. Fungicide resistant root rot of pulses is a growing threat to producers. The pulse root rot disease complex is a serious threat to pulse production across most of the production area. Multiple strategies are used to control disease. Progress is being made to develop varieties with true resistance. Crop protection chemicals for weed and pest control are of keen interest to growers. Uniform rules for residue lim- its are very important to marketing pulses to the world- market.
