This intercrop offers advantages on several points: 1) Agronomic: the reduction of nitrogen inputs thanks to the pea, a reduction of fungicide treatments linked to a reduction in the propagation of diseases, and a higher land equivalent ratio of the intercrop compared to separate wheat and pea crops; 2) Economic: income from two different markets : pea and wheat with a higher protein content. Over the last 10 years, the average economic returns from an Olympic average have given the following results: Wheat sole crop (670€/ha); Pea sole crop (480€/ha); Pea+Wheat intercrop without help from government (860€/ha); Pea+Wheat with help from government (1100€/ha); 3) Environment: reduction of inputs, local protein production (therefore reducing CO2 costs of imports)

Summary translation

Diese Zwischenfrucht bietet in mehrfacher Hinsicht Vorteile: 1) agronomisch: Verringerung des Stickstoffeinsatzes dank der Erbse, Verringerung der Fungizidbehandlungen in Verbindung mit einer geringeren Ausbreitung von Krankheiten und ein höheres Flächenäquivalenzverhältnis der Zwischenfrucht im Vergleich zum getrennten Anbau von Weizen und Erbsen; 2) wirtschaftlich: Einkommen aus zwei verschiedenen Märkten: Erbsen und Weizen mit einem höheren Proteingehalt. In den letzten 10 Jahren haben die durchschnittlichen wirtschaftlichen Erträge im olympischen Mittel folgende Ergebnisse erbracht: Weizen-Einzelanbau (670 €/ha); Erbsen-Einzelanbau (480 €/ha); Erbsen+Weizen-Zwischenfrucht ohne staatliche Unterstützung (860 €/ha); Erbsen+Weizen mit staatlicher Unterstützung (1100 €/ha); 3) Umwelt: Verringerung der Betriebsmittel, lokale Eiweißproduktion (und damit Verringerung der CO2-Kosten für Importe).

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn about the agronomic, economic and environmental benefits of pea-wheat intercropping systems in Wallonia.
What problem does the tool address?:The Belgian climate is not suitable for growing yellow peas in monoculture. This is due to the combination of wind and rain that causes the peas to lodge.
What solution does the tool offer?:One solution is to combine the yellow peas with wheat. This allows for a good exchange of services between these two crops, as the peas provide nitrogen to the cropping system while the wheat acts as a support for the pea.
