HARROLD, S.D. – (DRG News) South Dakota Pulse Processors will hold investor meetings across the state-starting next week. A series of the meetings in early to mid-September will be held in central South Dakota so area producers can get the first chances to become investors in South Dakota’s first pulse processing facility. SDPP plans to build and operate a five metric ton per hour processing plant in Harrold early next year and should be able to process the 2013 South Dakota pulse crop. Meetings will be September 4 in Selby and Harrold, September 5 in Oacoma and Pierre, September 6 in Winner, September 11 in Highmore and Gettysburg, September 12 in Onida and Timber Lake and September 13 in Philip. Pulse crops are generally harvested by area producers and usually are shipped out of South Dakota for processing. The new 5,500 square foot plant being built by South Dakota Pulse Processors will clean, size, polish, color sort, split, mill and package the crops. SDPP says pulse crops are well adapted to central South Dakota. Representatives of South Dakota Pulse Processors will be available this week at the South Dakota State Fair’s “Value Added Day” on Thursday with representatives at the Value Added Ag tent throughout the day.
