Large amounts of Danish pea seeds are rejected each year due to high levels of Ascochyta infections. Selection of less susceptible pea varieties may reduce seed infections, while intercropping with barley only gives a small reduction. Increasing seeding rates has no effect. Short pea varieties generally seem to be more susceptible to seed infection by Ascochyta than taller varieties.
