CESD, together with Michigan State University, explored the changes in Myanmar’s pulse value chains from 1988 to 2013. During this period, private sector initiatives by Myanmar’s traders and farmers resulted in the growth of pulses into a billion dollar export industry. Multiple favorable events – the opening of the Indian market, rising domestic pulse prices, and simultaneously falling oilseed prices – favored and enabled this growth, which occurred with limited government interference or involvement.

This report by CESD and Michigan State University looks at the  factors driving growth in Myanmar’s pulse production and exports, and looks at Myanmar’s four most important pulses value chains – green gram, black gram, pigeon pea and chick pea.
