ABSTRACT
In the present study the author determined the mechanical properties of pea stems as expressed by the rigidity and the elasticity coefficients and maximum bending stress of the pea stems of the Piast and Agra varieties. It was found that the Piast variety is characterized by a much higher rigidity and elasticity of stems, and by lower values of maximum bending stress, as compared to the Agra variety. The study showed that the pea cultivars under study differ in the strength of their stems.
