Winter pea and spring dry peas are part of the pulse family of crops that also includes lentils, chickpeas and dried beans. For growers, winter pea is one of a very few annual crop legume species capable of surviving harsh winters and is thus a good candidate for winter cover cropping that may also increase profitability. 

The UMN Food Science and Nutrition team will be working with both spring and winter peas to develop platforms that quickly and efficiently assess protein functionality in winter and spring pea varieties.
