Effects of nitrogen on yield in Wairarapa pea crops
Date 2016-07-22 16:20:52
This trial was conducted to test the yield response of direct drilled peas to nitrogen in the Wairarapa region to support growers with their crop management plans. No significant benefit was demonstrated from the application of nitrogen fertilizer to pea crops for either yield or harvest index. The yield benefit found in two of the fertilized treatments from the trials this year was not significantly better than that of the unfertilized treatments.
Fungicide control of Ascochyta in peas
Date 2016-07-22 16:20:52
Ascochyte is a disease complex caused by three fungal pathogens. This research evaluated foliar fungicides for control of Ascochyta in peas over four seasons. The variable response to these fungicides suggests that a disease forecasting system will be essential if farmers are to get economic responses from the use of the fungicides tested in the trials.
The crop tolerance of peas Pisum sativum to the application of 6 common herbicide treatments. Part A Five process pea cultivars.
Date 2016-07-22 16:20:52
A trial was conducted at Dromore, Mid Canterbury assessing the effect of six herbicide treatments on the yield and TR (tenderometer) of the five process pea (Pisum sativum) cultivars Epic, Tere, Bolero, Durango and Prolific. The six herbicide treatments included Treflan 2l/ha (400g/l Trifluralin) pre sow, Gardoprim 2 l/ha (500g/l Terbuthylazine) pre emerge and the post emergent applications of Sencor 350 g/ha (700 g/kg Metribuzin), Pulsar 5 l/ha (200g/l Bentazone + 200g/l MCPB) and Bladex 3 l/ha (500g/l Cyanazine) as well as a hand weeded control plot.
