Tools and Techniques for Plant-Based Protein: Breeding Mung Beans at ISU

June 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

Dr. Arti Singh and Iowa State University’s Department of Agronomy will share about current research to explore mung bean varieties for drought, disease, and pest resistance while also producing a high source of protein for vegetarian and vegan markets. The goal is to give Iowa farmers another crop option.

This IOA field day will focus on opportunities for organic producers to collaborate on research and take advantage of the growing market for organic producers. The event will include a field tour, presentations from Dr. Arti Singh, Dr. Paul Scott and Dr. Danny Singh about opportunities to supplement organic corn and soybean production with crops such as millet and field peas, and a demonstration of an AI-powered app that identifies insects and weeds.
