Yield components, harvest index and plant type in relation to yield differences in field pea genotypes

The effectiveness of yield components, harvest index and morphological characteristics as selection criteria among four field pea (Pisum sativum L.) genotypes was examined. Genotypes were grown at a wide range of plant populations (9 to 400 plants m-2) to maximise environmental diversity. Both biological and seed yields approximately doubled from 9 to 100… CONTINUE READING
