Euabalong - field pea varietal yield and quality trial locations
Aims

To provide localised data on optimum plant density for 6 different varieties of field peas.

Key messages
  • Although there was a very late break to the season, cooler conditions through September and
  • October maintained good yields.
  • Yield varied from 0.83 - 2.13t/ha. Yarrum, Kaspa and Parafield were the highest yielding varieties.
  • There was no significant difference between seeding rates, except for 16 plants/m2 which yielded significantly less than the other seeding rates. There were not enough plants to compensate for yield in the short season.
