«The pea crop is a beneficial part of an environmentally sustainable and ethical process, while simultaneously allowing crop diversification.»
The pea was originally domesticated in the Near East. The flowers, which are butterfly-shaped, do not require external pollen in order to be fertilized. They are said to be "autogamous", like wheat.
Good for the environment and profitable for the producer!
Like all plants of the legume family, the pea is capable of drawing on nitrogen from the air, a feature favorable for ecological agriculture, as the crop does not require nitrogenous fertilizers. In crop rotation, this has an additional beneficial effect on the wheat that follows the pea, which then has reduced fertilization needs. The life cycle analyses show that a crop rotation with peas reduces energy consumption by 11% and reduces greenhouse effect gases by 8%*.
In addition, farmers often use irrigation to avoid the effects of prolonged drought. But, the pea demands much less water in comparison with other irrigated crops.
The pea crop is therefore a beneficial part of an environmentally sustainable and ethical process, while simultaneously allowing crop diversification.
