Developing cultivars for the plant-based sector in Quebec: Phase i – breeding program construction and agronomy trials
It is critical for farmers to have cultivars so that they can make decisions on the best practices to undertake when growing a new crop and maintain productivity and competitiveness in the marketplace. Pulse production is growing in demand and is an established market in Canada. In addition, plant based protein products are growing in popularity. We are working on developing a set of tools and information and varieties that will enable farmers to grow more pulses in Quebec. We will also determine basic agronomic parameters that will maximize crop yield and minimize risk of crop failure.
