World Pulses Day (10th February) is a designated United Nations global event to recognise the importance of pulses (chickpeas, dry beans, lentils, dry peas and lupins among others) as a global food. Together with partners across Europe and the world, scientists at the James Hutton Institute are at the forefront of research into the exciting possibilities of pulses to feed the world in a sustainable way.
