KASPA THE FRIENDLY FIELD PEA: Two pre-release lines of field pea, OZP 0601
and OZP 0602, promoted from the GRDC-supported Pulse Breeding Australia
program, show great potential for WA, according to Ian Pritchard, Grains
Extension Officer at DAFWA.


The lines were selected from 24 evaluated across 11 sites in 2007.


"They are Kaspa type early-mid flowering field peas and are in the last
stages of testing before release," Mr Pritchard said.


"If they perform well this year, limited quantities will be available for
release in 2009. They're going through the pre-commercialisation pipeline


He indicated that Kaspa continued to show the broadest adaptation throughout
the WA wheatbelt.
