Aims
  • To maximise yield of new field pea varieties through the identification of optimum sowing dates,
    and to confirm yield advantages from previously identified best practice blackspot management
    strategies
Key messages
  • Despite only close to average growing season rainfall, yields in 2011 (average 2.9t/ha) were
    buoyed by stored soil moisture from summer rainfall, low disease levels and generally
    favourable growing conditions, and performed significantly higher than the wetter seasons of
    2009 (2.4t/ha) and 2010 (2.5t/ha) where growing season rainfall was higher but disease was
    more prevalent. These favourable growing conditions are also likely responsible for the lack of
    sowing date response in 2011.
