Abstract

Article summarizes results of study detecting the best varieties of peas cultivated in Latvian organic farming conditions. Study was conducted with new varieties of two species of crop peas: Pisum arvense L. (Pink flower varieties) – Retrija, Almara and Vitra, and Pisum sativa L. (White flower varieties) – Lasma and Zaiga. All varieties were selected in Latvia. The best among white flower varieties in terms of crop productivity was Zaiga variety, where yield was 1.45-1.48 t ha-1. Among pink flower varieties of peas, the most productive was Almara variety, with crop productivity of 1.36-1.69 t ha-1. Retrija variety of peas excels other studied varieties by total protein content and taste properties.
