Friends, IPGA recently launched the IPGA KNOWLEDGE SERIES with the aim of being a knowledge hub of the pulses sector. The IPGA KNOWLEDGE SERIES is a series of webinars / virtual meetings on subjects that are of critical interest to the pulses sector in India and world at large. These webinars will have eminent and expert panelists discussing the topic threadbare.
We have successfully hosted three webinars with over 900 participants from across 25 countries attending both webinars. The first webinar was on the path-breaking reforms announced by the Indian Government and their impact on the agri-marketing space; the second webinar was on the outlook for Desi and Kabuli Chickpeas and the third on Kharif Crop Outlook.
Our next webinar, scheduled for November 06, 2020 will be on LENTILS.
