Harvesting Field Peas

I harvested the field pea seed increase block yesterday,they yielded just over 1.2 t ha which with 69mm of in crop rain and being planted at 50% of the normal rate of seed was ok.
The local beans that are like a Rosa bean yielded 1.4 t ha although they were hand harvested and planted at the full seed rate.
The Trials are in the background,we are harvesting the 16 crop types/varieties/row spacings as they ripen, lots of weighing and records to be kept.
