Field pea “Kaspa type” variety mixtures, various sites, South Australia locations
Aims
  • To provide a long term yield evaluation of “Kaspa type” field pea varieties and their self-regenerating blends in five key field pea production regions across the state.
Key messages
  • Kaspa continues to show a yield advantage over earlier maturing varieties and blends in regions with high yield potential (eg Turretfield) due to its later maturity and subsequent higher yield potential.
  • Earlier maturing varieties and blends may confer a yield advantage over Kaspa in lower yielding situations/seasons.
  • This work will continue for a number of years reusing the seed from each location to identify any potential benefit for growers using a mix of these varieties to manage pea yields across variable seasonal conditions.
