Intercropping is planting two or more crops together that will produce a clear benefit to the farmer. About 85,000 acres of intercropping happens between Saskatchewan and Manitoba with the most common being a canola and pea combination ("peola").

The recent Indian pea tariff is a source of deep consternation for some, and yet it is not surprising for others. Folks with the latter view point to the recent softening of demand for peas from India. For example, in 2015, 67.4% of India’s pea imports were of Canadian origin. In 2016, this number had dropped to 52.4%. Many point to recent favourable growing conditions in India that created larger domestic supply as the main cause for the tariff that has left many world sellers, especially those in Canada, shell-shocked.
