YELLOW PEAS

Salamanca

A medium seeded, semi-leafless yellow pea with good lodging resistance, Salamanca is an early maturing variety with great seed quality. It is widely adapted and thrives across many of the pulse growing regions. Salamanca’s very high protein when combined with its high yield potential make it desirable in the food and feed markets and reinforce its value to the producer. 

Hyline

A medium seeded, semi-leafless erect yellow pea that is very well adapted for all pea growing areas, Hyline has been a top yielder in trials in North Dakota, Montana, and South Dakota; it is the only pea to yield over 100 bushels per acre in our private trial located in western North Dakota. Hyline has great quality combined with excellent lodging resistance, and a good disease package including root rot tolerance and powdery mildew resistance. 

Spider

A medium seeded, semi-leafless, high-yielding yellow pea with excellent lodging resistance as well as resistance to powdery mildew, Spider is an early maturing variety with great seed quality. Widely adapted, Spider has been a top yielder in trials in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska, and is a top yielder under irrigation. 

Profit

A white-flowered, semi-leafless, medium seeded yellow pea, AAC Profit offers the complete package with high yields, great standability, and high protein. AAC Profit has portrayed great adaptability as it has ranked right at the top in trials throughout the Midwest with maturity medium to late in most areas. It has also shown great height as well as lodging resistance along with a good disease package including powdery mildew resistance and an overall vigorous plant.

Gunner

A smaller seeded, semi-leafless tall yellow pea with good yield potential showing good protein, Gunner is an excellent choice to use in cover crop or forage mixes, as well as growing for sale into the commercial market.

Bridger

A small seeded yellow pea, Bridger is one of the highest yielding in trials across Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. A top pea in lodging resistance, Bridger has excellent height and is one of the earliest maturing peas making it an excellent choice in areas prone to drought stress.

Navarro

A large seeded yellow pea, Navarro has excellent lodging resistance with an above average yield. In trials Navarro has been the earliest flowering pea with an extended flowering period and early maturity—qualities which make it fairly stress tolerant. This variety fits nicely into a program of early seeding to spread out harvest and reduce risk.

Green Peas

Aragorn

A medium-sized seed with enhanced yield capability, Aragorn shows great bleach resistance, high quality green cotyledon, and average lodging resistance. It is an early maturing variety with an extended flowering period with good height.

Greenwood

A small-sized high quality seed, Greenwood has high resistance to bleaching and Pea Seed-borne Mosaic Virus. This green pea has strong standability and unique whole green color. 

Empire
