Abstract

CDC Treasure, a yellow cotyledon field pea (Pisum sativum L.) cultivar, was released in 2009 by the Crop Development Centre,University of Saskatchewan, for distribution to Select seed growers in Saskatchewan and Alberta through the Variety Release Committee of the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers. CDC Treasure has a semileafless leaf type, good lodging resistance, and medium-sized, round seeds. In the Field Pea Co-operative Registration Test, CDC Treasure was 2 d earlier maturing than Cutlass and 4 d earlier maturing than Eclipse; it was 3% higher yielding than Cutlass and 13% higher yielding than Eclipse. CDC Treasure is adapted to the field pea growing regions of western Canada.
