** NOTICE to Growers: INDIA Market Access (Nov. 13/17) **
APG is working with Pulse Canada to gather additional information regarding the current situation in India. Our organizations are concerned regarding the continued discussion on fumigation derogation and with the recently announced 50% tariff on peas. Presently, the industry has national representation in India undertaking discussions on these two issues. APG will endeavour to provide information to the grower community when available.
What’s A Pulse?
Pulses (including dry peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas) are the edible seeds of legumes. Pulses are grown for food and feed in countries around the world, and they are unique among grain crops in their ability to partner with certain soil bacteria to take nitrogen, an essential plant nutrient, from the air and turn it into a form that can be used by plants.
