German Pea and Bean Network

The actor group “Exemplary demonstration network for expanding and improving cultivation and utilisation of peas and beans” (in short, the “German pea and bean network”) covers 11 of the 16 federal states of Germany with 16 partner institutions. The partners are state institutions, universities, associations and a private institute and are involved in activities including extension services, farmer field trials, market development, quality control and knowledge transfer.

 

The main work of the group is done in cooperation with a network of 75 demonstration farms, who demonstrate best practice in growing, feeding or processing peas and beans. The cultivation itself and knowledge gained from demonstration plots is presented at farmer field days, workshops and seminars, alongside good examples for feeding, processing and marketing legumes. Some initiatives also follow the use of legumes for human consumption. The individual actors form a specific project group and network focused on the projects’ specified aims. The project coordinator is Ulrich Quendt, Landesbetrieb Landwirtschaft Hessen and more details of the project can be found at: http://orgprints.org/29873/.
