IYP Events Page Launched
The Legume Innovation Lab has created a special link, IYP, on its menu bar to keep its researcher current on events connected to the International Year of Pulses. LIL has also created a special email address, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), for all correspondence with the Legume Innovation Lab regarding the conference.

The first page link is dedicated to the March 2016 PanAfrican Grain Legume Conference and will be updated regularly. A general Events page has also been created to provide information on forthcoming events.
