Pea sales have been a little slower vs some years and this season quality is better compared to last year.
CDC Lewochko yellow pea is a new variety to us this season. It's a medium season, smaller seed size, has good cracking resistance and higher protein by 1% vs checks. It seems like a nice meadow replacement. Some buyers like https://lagrain.ca/ are offering new crop contracts and this past fall I noticed some $1 per bu over market bids for higher protein varieties similar to this.
AAC Chrome yellow pea is still the highest yielding and consistent irrigated pea we have grown. In dry areas a longer season pea like Chrome can suffer but in areas where an extra shot of rain is possible the Chrome can be a winner.
