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.
