Field pea and lentil sowing date x soil type, Mid North (Hart), South Australia locations
Aims
  • To compare new lentil varieties with current commercial varieties as well as current commercial field pea varieties and Kaspa type pea blends on two different soil types.
Key messages
  • Overall lentil and pea grain yields averaged 1.18 t/ha across all sites and treatments.
  • There was no significant foliar disease and the major yield limiting factor was the lack of late season rainfall, only 25mm in September and October.
  • Although only small the slightly higher grain yield at the eastern site compared to the western site highlights the importance of paddock and crop selection to maximise pulse yields in these more marginal areas.
  • A similar result was found in 2011 where there was a 0.46t/ha yield increase from the western site to the eastern site, 1.76 t/ha to 2.23 t/ha respectively.
