North Dakota Hard Winter Wheat Variety Trial Results for 2013 and Selection Guide - A1196
During the 2012-13 growing season, 220,000 acres were planted to winter wheat, with 205,000 acres harvested. The area harvested was down substantially from last year’s record area harvested of 700,000 acres.

North Dakota Dry Pea Variety Trial Results for 2013 and Selection Guide - A1469
Field pea fits well into small-grain rotations. The green- and yellow-seeded varieties are used for human consumption as dry split peas. Field peas also are used as protein concentrates for livestock and pigeon feeds. In North Dakota, pea yields are similar to hard red spring wheat yields. Field pea stems grow to a length of 33 to 36 inches, and the plant reaches maximum height at the early pod fill stage. A cool growing season (a mean temperature of 55 to 65 degrees) is necessary for optimum pea yields. Hot weather during flowering may result in a reduced seed set.
