Lentil and field pea agronomy locations
Aims

To compare new lentil varieties with older standards and current field pea options.

Key messages
  • Delaying sowing from 22nd May until 16th June led to an average 0.39t/ha yield reduction in 2012.
  • Field peas had higher grain yields than lentils at both sowing times and both sites.
  • At the lower yielding western site earlier maturing lentil varieties outperformed later maturing varieties Nipper and Nugget.
  • All field peas and field pea blends produced similar grain yields at each site and time of sowing.
