Abstract

CDC Limerick, a green cotyledon field pea (Pisum sativum L.) cultivar, was released in 2012 by the CropDevelopment 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 Limerick has good lodging resistance, powdery mildew resistance, medium-sized seeds with round shape, good cotyledon bleaching resistance, high protein concentration, and good yielding ability. CDC Limerick is adapted to the field-pea-growing regions of western Canada.
