Video: Scouting Sessions: Assessing Plant Stands in Field Peas


Optimum plant stands for field peas are 320 - 360,000 plants/acre or 7-8 plants/square foot. In this video, we go over three different methods to assess your field pea plant stand:

1. Fixed area method using a hoop or square
2. Row length method
3. Square foot method

Use the Plant Stand Assessor tool in the MPSG Bean App for easy calculations. The Bean App is available in the Play Store, the App Store and as a web- based tool at manitobapulse.ca.
