The IYP 2016 aims to heighten public awareness of the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production aimed
towards food security and nutrition. The Year will create a unique opportunity to encourage connections throughout the food chain
that would better utilize pulse-based proteins, further global production of pulses, better utilize crop rotations and address the
challenges in the trade of pulses.
The 18th SAASTEC Conference will be held at UniZulu Science Centre
