Field Pea Release PBA Taylor
AVS has granted Seednet a Plant Variety Licence for PBA Taylor, a mid-flowering and early to mid-maturing field pea.
It outclasses the existing dual virus-resistant variety PBA Wharton except in regions with high boron and salinity constraints.
PBA Taylor has resistance to two virus diseases: pea seed borne mosaic virus (PSbMV) and bean leaf roll virus (BLRV).
Variety developed by AVR from the National Field Pea Breeding program with support from GRDC
