Peas

The 2022 PGRO Descriptive Lists for combining peas show that LSPB varieties continue to offer pulse growers a wide choice to meet their yield, agronomy and marketing priorities.

Newly-listed Carrington is the top yielding pea on the PGRO DL and joins market-leading Bluetime, along with Stroma, Greenwich and Blueman green peas, Orchestra yellow pea and top-yielding Akooma marrowfat.
