The United Nations declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses (IYP).  A “pulse” is the edible seed of certain legumes such as dry beans, peas and lentils.  Pulses were chosen, according to the UN, to “heighten public awareness of their nutritional benefits as part of sustainable food production aimed toward food security and nutrition.”

In 2015, Nebraska ranked 1st in the nation in Great Northern bean production, 2nd for pinto bean production and 4th for all dry edible bean production.  Our state produces equal to approximately 1 billion servings of dry beans a year.
