To assess a number of commercial pulse varieties for yield and standability.
There were 2 varieties of peas that both yielded well and had good standability at harvest, namely Excell and Kaspa. If peas are to be grown on raised beds, then both these varieties could be considered because of their standability trait. It is important however to make sure that other agronomic issues such as disease resistance and grain quality are considered along with marketing options, before a final decision on varietal choice is made.
