A new pea variety similar in type to Progress No. 9 or Greater Progress
has been developed at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station
(Cornell University). It is intended for use in the home or market garden.
'Knight' is distinguished from other varieties in its class by having resis-
tance to four important diseases: Pea enation mosaic virus, Bean yellow
mosaic virus, powdery mildew, and common wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. pisi
race 1). A complete description appears in HortScience 14(2):197. 1979.
