2016 is the UN International Year of Pulses. To heighten public awareness of the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production, national food security and nutrition, the theme of our November Members’ Exhibition is “Seeds for a Sustainable Future”, celebrating the rich resources of pulses we can produce here in T&T.
Pulses are legumes that produce edible seeds which are used for human and animal consumption. Some of the most widely consumed types of pulses include kidney beans, navy beans, faba beans, chickpeas, split peas, mung beans, black-eyed peas, and several varieties of lentils.
