Condobolin, field pea varietal yield and quality trial locations

To provide localised data on the yield and quality response of released and near release field pea lines.

Key messages
  • The extremely late break to the season highlighted maturity differences in pod mapping.
  • The flowering period of late maturing varieties was cut short quite significantly. However there were not big yield differences overall.
  • Yield varied from 2.0 - 2.7t/ha.
  • The grain size varied from 18.6g/10Oseeds (Morgan) to 26.2g/10Oseeds (Moonlight).
