Combining peas – a sustainable and regional source of protein!

Combining peas

Short profile

Structure of a pea seedling

Different forms of cultivation

Breeding – the key objectives

Advantages of growing peas

Legumes bind nitrogen

Expansion of the crop rotation (example)

Alternation of spring and winter crops

Increasing importance

Growing cultivation area

Variable use: compound feed and human nutrition

New usages – food and raw material

Locally produced source of protein

Politics and society

EU agricultural policy

Trend: growing consumption of plant protein

  1. Combining Peas/ Short profile (own presentation based on the “Beschreibende Sortenliste”, 2021 Descriptive Variety List); Structure of a pea seedling (”Inhaltsstoffe”, Emsland Group); Different forms of cultivation (own presentation based on multiplication areas from the “Beschreibende Sortenliste”, 2021)
  2. Advantages of growing peas/ Expansion of the crop rotation (preceding crop value according to UFOP “Praxisinformationen” 2016; crop rotation example modified and based on “Erbsen und Ackerbohne anbauen und verwerten”, BLE 2021)
  3. Increasing importance/ Growing cultivation area (own presentation based on “Hauptnutzungsarten und Kulturarten”, destatis 2021); Variable use: compound feed and human nutrition (“Rohstoffeinsatz zur Mischfutterherstellung in Deutschland”, destatis 2021; own estimate by KWS (2022); New usages – food and raw material (own presentation based on “Erbsen- und Ackerbohnen, Einsatzmöglichkeiten in der menschlichen Ernährung”,, DemoNet Erbse Bohne 2021); Locally produced source of protein (own presentation based on the “Struktur der Mischfutterhersteller”, destatis 2021)
  4. Politics and society/ Trend: growing consumption of plant protein (Übersetzt nach AT Kearney: How will cultured meat and meat alternatives disrupt the agricultural and food industry, 2019)
