These data are from John Jeavons' work in the US, lb translated to kg, not per plant but per 100 square feet (9.29sqm), which I've recalculated per 10 sq meters. Jeavons has plants per 100sqft as well, and distances between plants in a bed, but I'm not near my copy, sorry. Sugarsnap or green peas, for a moderately skilled gardener, yield 25.9kg/10sqm using Jeavons' methods. Snowpeas are about half that. Dried peas (split) are less than 1/5, about 4.9kg/10sqm. The book 'How to Grow More..." (long title) should be in a well-stocked library in many parts of the world. It has one of the most ecologically sound gardening methods yet devised, the Biodynamic French Intensive method.
