When in commercial practice seed peas (Pisum sativum) are harvested, the vines are cut and windrowed or bunched and allowed to cure for a week or longer, depending upon the moisture content of the crop and weather conditions. The sooner the crop can be threshed, the less is the chance of loss caused by rain and the often-necessary attendant operation of turning the windrow or bunch to facilitate drying. In general, growers wait until the vines, pods, and seeds are quite dry. To what extent this is necessary is not known.
