Pests in Gardens and Landscapes

Watering peas

Peas are generally irrigated by sprinklers until germination and then irrigated with furrow or drip irrigation. It is important to avoid overwatering because that will promote root rot diseases, especially in heavier soils. Peas are shallow rooted and will generally do better with more light, frequent irrigation.

Place a hose or drip tape between rows of plants
