Mung Central

A newsletter has been launched to spread awareness of the International Mungbean Improvement Network (IMIN) as well as the profile of the vital, yet under recognized crop known as mungbean.

It’s the FAO International Year of the Pulse and all over the world people are celebrating the diversity and benefits of these wonderful foods! For centuries pulses
have formed the basis of many culinary cultures, from beans in Central America to chickpeas in the Middle-East. It’s only fitting then that we announce the launch of the
International Mungbean Improvement Network (IMIN). The IMIN is a collaboration between the World Vegetable Centre (Worldveg), the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries Australia, the Pulses Research Centre of the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (PRC-BARI), the Myanmar Department of Agricultural Research (DAR), and the Indian Institute of Pulses Research under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR-IIPR), with funding from the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
