USDA Requesting Industry Comments for Dry Beans, Peas and Lentils

USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service is seeking comments from industry partners on a draft amendment to the Commodity Specification for dry beans, peas and lentils. For split peas, AMS is proposing to use grade standard U.S No. 2 or better for all factors except for “whole peas” and allow up to three percent maximum for “whole peas.”
 
When submitting comments, please provide justification for any recommended changes to the proposed language. Comments can be sent to Richard Peterson by Wednesday, April 3.
