International Conference on Pulses, Oilseeds, and Spices which kicks off
tomorrow and end on November 24.

prevailing challenges affecting the sector and seek possible outlets to expand
their businesses in the future. They will address ways to increase quality,
productivity and marketability to reap maximum benefits from their endeavours
