Q.Snow peas

Zone Taumarunui, New Zealand | snapper added on December 15, 2017 | Answered

We have 8-10 individual plants growing up chicken wire and several have leaves turning pale green to straw colour, including the pods. In addition, some pods are curling on the flat side to a ‘U’ shape.
Could this be a fertiliser issue or pest attack? The plants have had some Yates Thrive plus though not for 2 weeks. They are watered daily.
Many thanks for any suggestions!

Peas are legumes, which means that they will gather their own nitrogen, and require only slight fertilization for phosphorus and potassium. This sounds like nitrogen toxicity. There is probably too much fertilizer in the soil. Here is an article with more information on growing snow peas: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/peas/how-grow-snow-peas.htm
