New varieties for 2018

 

New for spring 2018, we are excited to offer two new yellow pea varieties.

AAC Carver Peas (pictured above) are a great standing variety listed as medium maturity (but in our experience, they were definitely on the earlier side).  Carvers have a good disease package and we noticed very little disease in our crop last year.  The seed coat is stronger than many of the new popular varieties. The seed size is larger than Meadows with the technical bulletin saying around 240 grams/1000.  We were very impressed with this Carvers this year and we think this will have a good fit for guys that are looking for a good standing early maturing yellow pea variety.

 

AAC Ardill is a semi-leafless, high yielding and powdery mildew resistant yellow pea variety. In registration trials, AAC Ardill yielded 20 percent and 17 percent higher than the check varieties in 2014 and 2015 Sask Seed Guide. AAC Ardill had a lodging score of 3.5, significantly lower than the lodging score of the check varieties. It has very good seed shape and seed integrity. AAC Ardill matured at approximately 103 days, one or two days later than the check varieties.  This is the first year we have grown this variety and I really liked it. From planting to harvest there was nothing about Ardills that we didn’t like.
