Pre-sowing treatment of pea seeds with thiuram containing seed dressing preparations decreased the level of basic elements of the yield structure and also the sowing value of seeds, though their vigour was enhanced. An increase in the variation range of elements of the yield structure, caused by the seed dressing, was favourable from the point of view of breeding new cultivars.
