Not only did retaliatory trade tariffs continue into the year, India continued to suppress pulse trade to protect farmers, and while some agencies worked diligently on behalf of the U.S. pulse industry, others seemed to throw obstacles in the way, damaging both growers and traders of pulse crops. While it seemed that the U.S. had seen the worst, a global pandemic changed the rules, defining the workforce by those who are “essential” and those who were mandated to stay home and stay virus-free. COVID-19 dominated the fiscal year. Despite these setbacks, the U.S. pulse industry persevered, and the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council led the way out of the darkness.
