The Prairie Grain Development Committee held its annual meeting in Banff last week.

Committees evaluated potential new breeding variety lines and recommended the best of the best for registration.

This year the Pulse and Special Crops Committee recommended 16 new lentil lines, 13 pea lines, 5 faba bean and 5 dry bean lines for registration.

Dr. Glen Hawkins, a Senior Manager and Agronomist with DL Seeds, chairs that committee and says there's some great potential coming forward.

Out of the new breeding lines recommended for registration, Limagrain put forward twelve new lentil lines and five pea lines.

Limagrain registered six small red lentils, three large green, one French green, one extra small red and one small green along with five pea lines one green and four yellow.
