Peas Research

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.

Cytokinin: a key driver of seed yield
Date 2016-08-15 16:10:00
This review provides a historical basis to our current knowledge of the cytokinins and seed yield, and an introduction to the techniques that are being, or could be, used to manipulate cytokinins towards a sustainable future. Also highlighted us the choice of whether to enhance cytokinin biosynthesis via isopentenyl transfer (IPT) or decrease cytokinin degradation via cytokinin oxidase/ dehydrogenase (CKX), as these alternative strategies may depend on whether the plant is perceived to be in a source-limiting situation or sink limited respectively.
