In order to determinate the content of vitamins in mature grains of afila pea lines, we in the Centre for Vegetable Crops started a three years research during 1993-1995. We researched total content of beta-carotene, vitamin A1 and B1 in 8 afila lines and 4 parental cultivars. The average content of the researched vitamins in pea grains showed that the content of vitamins in the researched genotypes was the same as previously determined by other authors, which leads to a conclusion that leaflessness does not influence the decrease of content of the mentioned vitamins in mature pea grains.
