Research Objective

Project Description

This project evaluated key varieties of lentil, pea, chickpea, and faba bean at strategic locations of adaptation in Saskatchewan in 2020. Trials were coordinated by the pulse crop breeding group at the Crop Development Centre (CDC), University of Saskatchewan and were conducted by the CDC as well as co-operators in the province. The number of test locations in 2020 was fewer than in previous years and common bean was dropped due to restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Useful yield data were collected from nearly all sites and the data were reported and incorporated into long-term means, then presented to the Saskatchewan Advisory Council on Grain Crops for approval prior to publication in the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture publication Varieties of Grain Crops, 2021, which is widely available.
