A collection of 1571 Pisum introductions was screened for resistance to Bruchus pisorum (L.) in field trials by using percentages of infested pods and seeds as the primary evaluation criteria. These criteria permitted excellent differentiation of pea weevil resistant and susceptible pea cultivars and introductions. Entries with 4% or less infested seeds in 1972 and 1974 field trials were plant introduction (P.I.) nos. 196027, 244241, 244254, 244263, 263026, and 280612. Non preference for oviposition was judged the major mechanism contributing to resistance. Peduncle lengths of resistant introductions were significantly shorter than those of susceptible cultivars and were highly correlated with lower percentages of infested pods and seeds.
