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.
