Aims

To reduce lodging and increase harvestability and biomass. To assess fungicide efficacy on blackspot infection under different canopy structures (Hart ONLY).

Key messages

Field pea cultivar mixtures show potential in terms of decreasing lodging and increasing harvestability. Cultivar combinations dd not increase biomass and grain yield compared to sole varieties in 2019.
