South Dakota Pulse Processors To Start Construction Next Month

South Dakota Pulse Processors are moving forward with their processing facility near Harold and hope to be able to start up operations next summer. CEO Mat Chaudry says they have plans to start other pulse processing plants if they can make this one work.

Chaudry says South Dakota farmers are already producing more peas, lentils and chickpeas than they can process and he’s hoping their Harold plant will help them.

He says they’ve received great support from South Dakota’s producers and local and state government officials with their project.

Chaudry says South Dakota has the potential to out produce North Dakota for pulse crops in the future.
