Pea Seed-borne Mosaic Virus

Pea Seed-borne Mosaic Virus (PSbMV) in Field Peas and Lentils - PP1704

Pea seed-borne mosaic virus (PSbMV) is an economically damaging viral pathogen of field peas and lentils that can cause significant losses in seed yield and quality, especially when infections occur before or during bloom. It has been observed on field peas and lentils in North Dakota and on field peas in Montana. PSbMV is distributed worldwide, and it presumably was introduced to North Dakota and Montana on seed imported from other regions.

Dry Pea Variety Trial Results 2013

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.

Dry Pea Variety Trial Results

North Dakota Dry Pea Variety Trial Results for 2014 and Selection Guide - A1469-14

Dry pea (Pisum sativum L.), native to southwest Asia, was among the first crops brought under cultivation by man. The largest acreages of dry pea in the United States are in North Dakota, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. As a cool-season legume crop, it fits well into small-grain rotations. The green- and yellow-seeded varieties are used for human consumption. Dry peas also are used as protein concentrates for livestock and pigeon feeds. In North Dakota, pea yields generally are similar to or exceed spring wheat yield. Peas also can be used as a forage crop for hay, pasture or silage.

Growing Lentil in North Dakota - A1636

An overview of lentil production for specialty crop producers, including weed control, diseases, harvesting and references. Lentil production in North Dakota primarily has been confined to the western part of the state because disease is an issue under higher moisture conditions. Lentil is an excellent rotational crop. Production of lentil or other legumes in a diverse cropping system may improve soil health, and provides for an opportunity to control problem weeds such as downy brome.
