Abstract

Individually sown plants of a forage-type pea (Pisum sativum L.), cv. Magnus, and a grain-type pea cv. Eiffel, were harvested several times over the growing season to determine bow the quantity of plant components changed with time from sowing. There was no difference between the pea types in the mean dry weight per plant. The leaf-to-stem ratio of the two types was also not different. An appropriate grain-type pea cultivar could be a suitable substitute for forage-type cultivar in some forage production systems.
