Achievements and challenges in improving pea seed quality for food (

Sustainability and sustainable intensification are currently at the top of the agricultural agenda and increasing the rate at which legume crops such as peas and beans are incorporated into crop rotations is very desirable in attaining this goal. One way to promote legume and pulse crops is to improve end-use traits to meet the demand for high quality in extant or emergent new markets. This is one of the challenges being addressed within the Defra-funded Pulse Crop Genetic Improvement Network (PCGIN, 2015-2017) and the EU LEGATO project (FP7-KBBE-2013-7-613551).
