PERALES, Agustín; LOLI, Oscar; ALEGRE, Julio  and  CAMARENA, Félix. Indicators of sustainability of the soil management in the pea (Pisum sativum L.) production. Ecol. apl. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.1-2, pp.47-52. ISSN 1726-2216.

A diagnosis of the soil management in pea production, in the district of Manzanares, Concepción - Junín, Perú was carried out, through of participatory research, with the objective of identifying homogeneous zones of production, characterizing systems of management; determining indicators of sustainability, sustainability index and critical points of soil management in pea production. Two homogeneous zones of production were indentified, with and without irrigation. In the first zone, cultivation systems with chemical fertilization and leguminous rotation nutrients, apparent density of the topsoil, vegetal cover, weeds, yield and pea symbiotic nodulation, and plagues and diseases incidence. Systems of soil management in both zones were not sustainable. The critical points identified in the soil management for both zones were: vegetal cover management, fertilization, tillage, and cultivation rotation.
