US Sen. Steve Daines asked the Indian Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal to abolish tariffs and trade obstacles on pulse crops during a meeting this week.

"With Montana being the nation's leading producer of pulse crops and India being the world's greatest consumer of pulse crops, it's a key market to expand for Montana," Daines added.
