Yellow Peas

AAC Ardill

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.

AAC Carver

AAC Carver Peas are great standing Yellow pea variety. They are 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.

CDC Amarillo

This a medium height variety with one of the best lodging resistance ratings. Seed weight is less than CDC Saffron but has medium protein content and good cooking quality. We have grown these from breeder seed directly from the Crop Development Centre in Saskatoon and have been very impressed so far. We’ve also had lots of positive feedback from growers.

CDC Meadow

CDC Meadows have been proven again and again to be a top performer. Meadows are an early maturing medium sized pea with strong seed coat characteristics. We have tried to find a better yellow pea but CDC Meadows are still one of the best varieties on the market.

Green Peas

CDC Patrick

These green CDC Patrick peas are an excellent yielding pea and have also tested great for lodging resistance, bleaching resistance, powdery mildew and fusarium wilt resistance when compared with Cooper and CDC Striker. In our experience, Patrick peas stand better than other varieties of green peas that we have grown in the past. We also noticed that they have tough seed coat and are less likely to crack.
