Map of the Soviet Union with places where peas are grown.

In Ukraine, the central chernozem zone of Russia, the North Caucasus and Moldova, the best precursors for planting peas are winter cereals, sugar beet and corn.

In the Volga region, such crops are winter cereals, spring wheat, sugar beet and potatoes.

In the Urals, northern Kazakhstan and Western Siberia, peas are sown after spring wheat and corn for silage.

It is impossible to plant peas after sunflower, perennial legumes and cereals, because these crops have common pests and diseases.

For the same reason, it is possible to sow peas again only after 5 years.


In order to switch to intensive pea cultivation technology, scientists need to solve a number of problems.

To create or select intensive varieties adapted to intensive cultivation, to raise the level of soil fertility, to ensure timely implementation of all operations for sowing and caring for plants.

Work in the laboratory to solve these problems.

Experts inspect the shoots of peas.

The application of nitrogen fertilizers is influenced by the main feature of peas - symbiosis with nodule bacteria.

Nodule bacteria, a view under a microscope.

Peas satisfy the need for nitrogen up to 50% by symbiotic nitrogen fixation.

The rest of the nitrogen is taken from the soil, mainly from humus.

Nitrogen is applied only when the soil contains less than 3% humus.

Studies have shown that the increase in the number of active nodule bacteria is facilitated by the treatment of seeds with the bacterial preparation rhizotorphin.

Harvesting peas.

Processing of the field for peas begins immediately after harvesting the predecessor.

After corn, the field must be treated with heavy disc harrows.

After grain ears, stubble peeling is carried out.

Thanks to this, the root-stem residues are well crushed and the best smell is provided.

Before the rise of the cold, potash and phosphorus fertilizers are introduced into the soil.

Two weeks after surface tillage, plowing is carried out.

Cultivation of the finch, in order to level the soil surface, seal the split furrows and destroy the weeds that have appeared.

In the zones of wind erosion, autumn tillage consists of one or two loosening with flat cutters.

Harrowing of the soil with heavy harrows and cultivation is carried out.

In the North Caucasus, when sowing in the February and March thaws, the pre-sowing harrowing of the winter is limited.

In Ukraine and Moldova, one cultivation is carried out on fields leveled in autumn.
