EXPERIMENTS WITH FIELD PEAS AND SOY* BEANS
By Paul J. White, Agronomist
During the past four years co-operative experiments with
field peas have been conducted at the Experiment Station at
Pullman. The first three years the work was done by Mr. M.
W. Evans of the Bureau of Plant Industry, United States De
partment of Agriculture. In 1912 these, investigations were a
part of the experiments of the Division of Crop Production of
this Experiment Station in co-operation with the Bureau of
plant Industry, United States Department of Agriculture.
During these years a large number of field peas have been
under trial. Standard varieties of field peas as well as new
introductions are included in the list of those tried.
Two bulletins have thus far been published from the Ex
periment Station jiving progress of these trials. Bulletin Mo.
99 gives a brief discussion of field peas in general and a de
scription of the leading varieties. There are three varieties
commonly known as Canada field peas, viz., Golden Vine,
Prussian Blue and Mackay. Golden Vine and Prussian Blue
are medium late varieties, These two have produced good
yields of both forage and seed at Pullman. Mackay is a late
variety which has yielded well of both forage and seed at this
Station in favorable seasons. Two other varieties have been
introduced from India, viz.. Bangalia and Amraoti. The first
is an early, small-seeded variety, which has produced a good
yield of seed every year during the rial. The amount of for
age is less than that of the later varieties. Amraoti is sligtly
later in maturing. The yield of seed is good and the amount
of forage somewhat greater than that of Bangalia. A third
variety, Kaiser, was introduced from Germany in 1905. This
is a medium late variety with large seeds. The yield of forage
has been greater than that of the two varieties from India, but
the yield of seed has been less.
Popular Bulletin No. 36 summarizes the experience with
field pea culture at Pullman from 1897 to 1909 inclusive. Suc
cessful crops of this legume have been grown yearly sine.' that
date; The largest yield of seed on any considerable area was
■12.5 bushels per acre, produced in 1909. The largest yield of
hay recorded is 4.2 tons per acre. Not only have field peas
been successfully grown at Pullman, but they have also been
grown with good success in other parts of the slate, It is prob
able that they will become a valuable forage crop in sections
where the rainfall is fifteen to twenty inches or more. Field
peas are used for hay, for soiling purposes, for pasture or
"hogging off" and for grain. When the seed is used it is gen
erally ground and mixed with ground barley, oats, or other
grain. The seed is too high in protein to be used alone, either
with safety or economy.
Variety Tests in 1912
From the large number of varieties which have been under
test at Pullman there are three which appear to surpass all
others in seed production. These have been mentioned above,
viz., Bangalia, Amraoti, and Kaiser. During successive years
of trial these have not failed to give satisfaction. Not until
the season of 1912 was there .sufficient seed of these varieties
in this country to make it possible to test them on fairly large
areas. in the spring of 1912 all the seed available of these
three varieties was planted. The total acreage sown was
about fourteen acres, fairly well distributed among the three
varieties. The land was fall plowed. It was disked in early
spring and afterward harrowed. The seed was drilled deeply
m April. About two bushels of seed per acre were sown. The
season was favorable for the growth of peas. On account of
much unseasonable rainy weather in August difficulty was
experienced in harvesting the crop. A mowing machine with
pea harvester attachment was used. They were threshed with
a grain thresher. To avoid breaking the peas the concaves
were removed from the machine. About twelve per cent of the
peas were broken in threshing. These are fully as good for
feeding purposes as the whole seeds. Table I. shows the yield
per acre of threshed peas. It is estimated that fully five
bushels of peas per acre were lost from shattering. As it
rained several times while they were curing they had to be
rrequwently turned in order to prevent moulding.
Variety Test of Field Peas, 1912
Variety Yield of Threshed Peas per Acre
Bangalia 49 bushels
Amraoti 44 bushels
Kaiser 41 bushels
In a field adjoining the field in which these varieties were
grown seventy-eight other varieties were also grown in dupli
cate square rod plots. The yield of these varieties was exceed
ingly variable. The production of seed ranged from 4.2 to 34.4
pounds, according to variety, or at the rate of 5.4 bushels pet
acre for the poorest yielder to 45.8 bushels per acre for the
best. The best variety did not yield as well as the Bangalia.
■is show in Table I. It is probable, however, that two or three
of these better varieties could profitably be given further trial.
Rate of Seeding Tests for Seed Production and Forage
It has been frequently stated that the rate of seeding field
peas has an important effect upon the resulting crop of seed
or forage. In order to test this factor, experiments were con
ducted iv 1911, using seed at the rate of two to eleven pecks
per acre for forage purposes. Ten plots in all were sown
April 19. Table 11. gives the results of this test. The yields of
all plots were very low, the highest being less than one ton of
cured hay per acre* By referring to Table V. it may be seen
that when peas are sown alone for hay the yield is likely to be
much less than if peas and oats are both sown. It would not
be safe to draw conclusions from this test, but it will be noticed
that when an excessively large amount of seed per acre was
used the yield was less than when a moderate amount was
sown. ; -
•The per cent of dry matter was found for each plot and the
yield of hay computed on a ten per cent moisture basis. This is
also true of Tables IV. and V.

ln 1912 a test was made in order to determine the best rate
of seeding for seed production. Five plots of one rod square
were sown in duplicate. Seed was sown at the rate of two to
six bushels per acre. The result is shown in Table 111. There
is not a great difference in the yield of these plots, except iv
the one where six bushels per acre of seed were used. Aside
from producing the lowest yield, the peas from this plot were
much smaller. Many pods contained only one or two peas. It
is believed that from two to two and one-half bushels of seed
per acre arc sufficient. In those sections of the state where
there is less rain than at Pullman less seed should be used.

- 3 35.6 bushels
a 4 35.0 bushels
4 5 31.3 bushels

Date of Seeding Peas for Forage
Peas, like oats, are a crop which is able to make a good
growth during the cooler part of the season. Failure is often
caused by planting the seed too late. For best results the laud
must be fall plowed and worked into a good tilth early iv the
spring. The date of seeding will depend upon the season. At
Pullman the laud is fitted and the seed sown as early as pos
sible. In ordinary seasons this can be done m April. Table
IV. gives the results of different dates of seeding for the sea
sou of 1911. This was a backward spriug. Very little spriug
work was done until the last of April, lv this table it will be
•seen that the best results were secured from the "seeding done
May 13. Plots which were plauted later produced only about
bine-half as much hay per acre as those plauted May Ist aud
May 13th. All plots in this experiment were seeded at the
rate of two bushels per acre. \

Mixing Peas and Oats for Forage
When peas are to be used for soiling purposes or for hay,
better results arc secured if oats are sown -with the peas.
There will be secured a better yield of green peas or hay
than if the peas are sown alone. As peas alone are inclined
to fall down when they begin to mature, the oats will help to
keep them erect until they can be cut. Consequently the crop
is more easily harvested. In case peas and oats are sown
together the peas are sown in advance of the oats by a week
or ten days. They are sown deeply, while the oats are sown
more shallow, in order to avoid breaking the sprouts of the
peas. If sown at the same time the oats come up first and
choke the peas.
In 1911 peas and oats were sown together and the result
ing crop cured for hay. Seeding was done April 19. There
were eight plots in the field. In seeding plots numbered Ito 4
the variety known as Amraoti was used. The variety Ban
galia was used in plots 5 to 8. It will be noticed that the
results in the last four plots are comewhat more satisfactory
than in the first four. "Bangalia peas have thus far produced
heavier yields of seeds than any other peas tried at Pullman,
although the vines are not so large as those of Amraoti.
Different Mixtures of Peas and Oats for Hay
Proportion Tons of
of Oats to Date Height Hay
Peas Harvested of Peas per Acre
6 pecks oats July 22 40 inches 2.7
4 pecks peas
3 pecks oats July 26 40 inches .2.9
4 pecks peas
3 pecks oats July 26 42 inches 3.2 -'
6 pecks peas
8 pecks peas alone July 18 43 inches 1.3
6 pecks oats July 25 40 inches 2.7
4 pecks peas
3 pecks oats July 26 ...... 40 inches 3.8
4 pecks peas
3 pecks oats July 26 40 inches 3.6
6 pecks peas
8 pecks peas alone July 17 42 inches 2.7
The above results would indicate that about three pecks
of oats and from four to six pecks of peas will give best results.
In case of both varieties this mixture was far better than eight
pecks of peas sown alone. In .Table V. it appears that more
hay was secured with three pecks of oats and six pecks of
Amraoti peas, while a larger yield of hay was procured from
three pecks of oats and four pecks of Bangalia peas. This
may indicate that six pecks o£ the variety Bangalia are too
many peas. The seeds of this variety are small. Fifty pounds
contain as many seeds as sixty pounds of Amraoti.
