Pea Varieties

What did everyone grow this year?
Been growing Ardills for two years really happy with them. Yield is real good they stand not bad. Just wondering what other varieties are looking like?

I had Safrons and Inca. The yield was about the same the inca stood taller which meant slower harvest as they were bulky but with wet ground you could roll the header back and had less pushing mole hills.

I’ve grown Safrons also, good peas just too big. Too much down time filling due to higher seeding rates. They should be paying a premium for a bigger pea for the extra downtime.

I have seen germ tests from several varieties this year they are all incredibly huge, like over 4 bu / ac big.... I guess seed size is where some of the yield came from but yikes that's gonna make seeding tough. so mostly environmental.


the standability is what I really like about the Ardill. its funny, seems like they have moved backwards over the years all the newer varieties seem to have issues with seed breakage.

Have to combine them at 17 not to damage them.

Meadows 5 bpa.

Both were so flat on the ground the Lady bugs could see over top of them while walking on the ground. lol These are crop insurance no. Still cant get in these fields due to wetness of ground.

Carvers here too. They just stand so nice compared to Meadow or Agassiz. Ours yielded 82 this year and still didnít lay down much.

I just hope Roquette will put Carvers on their accepted variety list for next years contracts.

Lots of 8 and 9 seed pods this year.

The key to a successful rain dance is doing it just before it rains.

Huh, wonder why Ardill not on AB list?
I know a local seed grower had some.
