Improved pea production for sustainable arable farming: pea crop monitoring report 2006-07
Date 2016-08-16 15:02:56
This report covers one of the projects carried out as part of the Pea Industry Development Group’s programme to identify management practices to improve productivity, reliability and profitability of pea production. This particular project monitored 30 pea paddocks in the 2006-07 growing season to try to identify the principal management and environmental causes of plant establishment yield variability. The variation in emergence within paddocks, and between adjacent rows within paddocks, was considerable. However, this study was not able to isolate the factors that determine why establishment is so poor and variable.
