Dinoseb Grant 1990



  • Evaluate weed control efficacy and crop tolerance of Cobra on processing peas.
  • Evaluate combinations of MCPA amine, Basagran, Poast and crop-oil for weed control efficacy and crop tolerance in processing peas.
  • Investigate the feasibility of field sampling to determine weed densities and weed species of sampled fields.
  • Follow development of black and hairy nightshade from emergence through crop harvest to determine potential for crop contamination.

Research trials established in 1991 evaluated several weed management practices in snap beans, peas, and cucurbits. Much of the work reported was conducted in the Willamette Valley, although results of IR-4 pea residue and tolerance trials from 3 states are included.

Peas, Processing -- Eastern Oregon

Pisum sativum

Last revised February 12, 2010

Peas in eastern Oregon are grown in the Blue Mountain area east of Pendleton to Milton-Freewater, mostly as dry-land production in rotation with wheat. More recently production has also been in the Hermiston area where soils may be more sandy and subject to wind erosion. Hermiston area production may be irrigated or non-irrigated.
