I’d like to hear what other pea growers are using for a fertilizer program.
I grow canning peas when I can get a contract. Best yields I ever grew was when I gave up on the crop because it was planted late and I didn’t think it would amount to much. That year I just did some 9-23-30 and 32% and ATS through the irrigation system. Apparently it was the best peas the canner had that year.
But I’ve also thrown the kitchen sink at them. Pell Lime and 300# of 10-15-20 with a micro pack followed by calcium plus nitrogen product (which is 32% mixed with calcium and potash) through the system at flower but this program is pretty expensive and there seems to be no gaurantee on yield.
