Peas: the use of peas

Peas are famous not only for their seeds. Villagers have long noticed this feature: if the field grows peas, the yield of all other plants increases markedly. 


Peas: the use of peas



It turns out that it's all about the small nodules that dot the roots of peas . It is in these nodules that soil bacteria live, which extract nitrogen from the air and accumulate it. Bacteria settle on the roots of plants from the legume family. After harvesting, the roots remain in the ground and thus feed nitrogen to all other plants. 

It only remains to add that pea soup is both delicious and very useful, since peas contain a lot of protein. In addition, sweet canned peas are also popular, which can act as an independent side dish, an ingredient for salads or one of the components of a vegetable stew.
