Aims
  • To maximise yield of new field pea varieties through the identification of optimum sowing dates.
Key messages
  • Since soil moisture was not limiting, and a soft finish to the season was observed, sowing date trials at Minnipa in 2010 showed no differences in yield between early and late sowing dates under these conditions.
