5539. Ramig, R.E.. 1987. Conservation tillage systems for green pea production in the Pacific Northwest.. IN: J.F. Power (ed.). The role of legumes in conservation tillage systems. p. 93-94.
Summarizes a 13 yr study of the effects of 4 tillage systems in a pea-winter wheat cropping system on water conservation and use, yields, water use efficiency, and the changes in weed populations. Water storage on land on which wheat stubble was left standing overwinter averaged 10% more than on fall-tilled stubble. There were no significant differences in wheat yields among tillage systems. Weed infestations in peas shifted due to tillage, primarily with lambsquarters. Spring plow was worst. Conservation tillage for a wheat-pea rotation can enhance water conservation, and in dry years can increase pea yields by 20% and wheat yields by 5%. Long-term effects are not consistent due to crop residue influences.

8608. Young, F.L.. 1990. IPM systems research.. unpublished handout from USDA-ARS Weed Research Unit, Pullman, WA 99164.
The IPM Weeds study near Pullman, WA uses two 3-yr crop rotations, two tillage systems, and three weed management (herbicide) levels. Spring pea average yields after 3 yr were higher with chisel plow than with moldboard plow, slightly responsive to increased weed management level, and highest with maximum weed management/chisel plow combination.

10416. Smith, L. (ed.). 1991. North central Idaho county extension field crop demonstrations, 1989-1990.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Misc. Series 152, Moscow..
