Field pea lodging is a big problem in productive growing environments. @AlbertaWheat's @SheriStrydhorst recently led a study to assess two possible ways to try to reduce lodging in field pea: inter-row seeding into standing stubble and PGRs. #westcdnag

Pea aphids not only cause direct damage from feeding, but also indirect damage through transmission of viruses like Pea Seed-borne Mosaic Virus. The virus can be tricky to identify, but @USaskEnt has the mechanisms and expertise necessary to test for it.
