Western Australian pulse production is relatively small producing on average 95,000 tonnes over the last 5 years delivering about $50 million to the State economy. The major pulses grown in WA are field pea, faba bean and chickpea with smaller amounts of lentils also grown in some seasons.

The top export markets for Western Australian pulses are China, Bangladesh and the Philippines.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development supports the pulse industry through the production of the pulse variety and agronomy guides which is available in DPIRD’s Crop Sowing guide; and support for germplasm development and evaluation.
