Ghent-based Protealis, a Belgian seed developer, has commissioned two growth chambers to rapidly develop local soybean and pea varieties. The facilities mimic ideal growing conditions. Protealis is building on research by ILVO and the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology. As early as next year, farmers will be able to purchase seeds of its first soybean variety. The demand for protein-rich legumes such as soy and peas is growing, both for animal feed and human consumption.
