What a fantastic event the Dry Bean Breeding Program hosted yesterday. The room was packed with people eager to hear about the bean breeding program and their objectives. Peter Pauls gave a brief overview of the program before we were split into groups to go on a tour of the growth rooms and look at seed samples of recently licenced varieties.
After the tours were finished, we had a chance to gather and socialize with members of the industry and of the research community while tasting delicious bean recipes created by the bean breeding crew!
It was a very well run and informative event. Thank you to those who were involved in putting it all together.
