HARROLD, S.D. (AP) - Hughes County Commissions have approved the final plat and zoning changes needed to construct a new pulse processing plant set to be near Harrold.

The commissioners on Monday approved changing the zoning from agricultural use to an agricultural and industrial development.

South Dakota Pulse Processors has raised $2 million to construct the plant, which will process pulse crops like lentils, field peas and chick peas.

The Pierre Economic Development Corp. plans to buy the five-acre lot for $50,000 and lease the property to South Dakota Pulse Processors.
