AgriTrade 2009: Glyphosate Damage & Peas


I was at AgriTrade in Red Deer, Alberta on Wednesday and I talked Sarah Foster from 20/20 Seed Labsabout how they are finding lower germination results in peas this winter due to glyphosate damage.  It is essential that you test your saved seed before you make any plans on planting.  Planting high quality seed is critical to giving yourself a chance to have success.  If the crop doesn’t germinate you will not have to worry about herbicides or fungicides.  If you you dried down your peas this season and intend to save the seed please get your seed tested at a certified lab.  This is truly a corner that is not worth cutting in the high stakes game of farming.
