  Harvesting seed crops of peas (Pisum sativum L.) at different moisture content provided evidence that seed vigour appeared after physiological maturity and continued until some time after physiological maturity and then declined as harvesting was delayed. It was observed that seed vigour was highest when seed moisture content was lowest. The results of the present study provided contrasting evidence against Harrington’s hypothesis about seed longevity and deterioration as maximum seed quality was not attained at physiological maturity and this did not start deteriorating after physiological maturity.

  Post harvest management i.e. drying seed crops at different drying times and temperatures studies showed that pea seeds (Pisum sativum L.) were very sensitive to either high drying temperatures or longer drying times. Drying temperatures of 40, 60, 80 and 100oC were tested. It was found that only 40oC was suitable for pea seeds.

  Post harvest management i.e. drying seeds at different drying methods (floors) studies were performed in an unheated glasshouse of the University of Wales, Bangor, United Kingdom. Seeds were air dried on different floors, made of concrete, cowdung and soil. It was observed that concrete drying floor was suitable to maintain seed quality (viability and vigour) for pea seeds (Pisum sativum L.).

  Studies were provided evidence that as density of plant increased seed yield decreased and number of pods per plant, number of seeds per plant, number of seeds per pod, seed weight per plant and 100 seed weight all decreased. High density also produced the poorest quality pea seeds. There were no differences in germination percentage of the seeds produced from the main stem. However, the seeds produced from the branches showed a variation in germination. The germination percentage was similar in the lower nodes but in the upper nodes of the branches showed a lower germination percentage.

  Studies were provided evidence that high density plants produced seeds of poorest quality. As density increased seed yield per plant decreased. Number of capsules per plant and per branch, number of seeds per plant and per branch, seed weight per plant and per branch and 100 seed weight also decreased with increasing density. On the other hand number of capsules per branch, number of seeds per branch and seed weight per branch were all highest on the main stem and decreased in the order first, second and remaining branches.
