Additional tips
Since the soil is supplied with nitrogen through the roots, they should only be cut off after harvest and left in the soil. Due to the nitrogen excretions on the roots of the peas, planting in mixed culture promotes surrounding plants. In marker peas, only the seeds are harvested when they are green and mature. This variety needs k A framework for the pea shoots to guide up. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.
