The crop tolerance of peas Pisum sativum to the application of 6 common herbicide treatments. Part A Five process pea cultivars.

A trial was conducted at Dromore, Mid Canterbury assessing the effect of six herbicide treatments on the yield and TR (tenderometer) of the five process pea (Pisum sativum) cultivars Epic, Tere, Bolero, Durango and Prolific. The six herbicide treatments included Treflan 2l/ha (400g/l Trifluralin) pre sow, Gardoprim 2 l/ha (500g/l Terbuthylazine) pre emerge and the post emergent applications of Sencor 350 g/ha (700 g/kg Metribuzin), Pulsar 5 l/ha (200g/l Bentazone + 200g/l MCPB) and Bladex 3 l/ha (500g/l Cyanazine) as well as a hand weeded control plot.
