About PBA

Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA) is a world class Australian breeding program delivering highly adapted chickpea, field pea, lentil, faba bean and lupin varieties to growers across Australia.

Pulses are vital to the creation of sustainable farming systems across Australia. They provide disease breaks for cereal crops, improve weed control options, reduce reliance on artificial fertilisers and assist with diversifying growers’ production and marketing opportunities.

PBA has operated since 2006 and its vision is to see pulses expand to >15% of the cropping area so as to underpin the productivity, profitability and sustainability of Australian grain farming systems.
