Pulse School: Which Input is the Most Important for Max Pea Yields?

Which input do you think is the most critical to a pea crop’s success — starter N, inoculant type, fungicide seed treatment or seeding rate?  If you guessed seeding rate, you get a gold star, but by how much and what impact, if any, do these other inputs have on maximizing pea yields?

Those answers are exactly the kinds that a four-year study in western Canada is looking at.
