Peas have a relatively short season and are a popular vegetable over the summer months. Most peas grown in New Zealand are eaten processed.
In 2015 the total tonnage grown was 66,500 tonnes and $84.8m FOB was exported.

Assessment of 12 Herbicide Treatments on the Crop Tolerance and Yield of Bounty Peas
Control of weeds not only helps maximise yield but it also prevents potential harvest difficulties due to the high moisture content of weeds retaining moisture in the crop and therefore requiring desiccation prior to harvest. Crop quality can also be affected due to water staining on seed peas as well as the difficulty of removing some weed seeds from the harvested crop, this is especially so for Californian thistle (Cirsium arvense) infestations in processed pea crops.
The present trial was designed to evaluate the effect of 12 herbicide treatments on the yield of both processing and seed peas.
