The study was conducted at Pulses Research Centre (PRC), Ishurdi, Pabna, Regional Agricultural Research Station (RARS), Jamalpur and Pulses Research Sub-station (PRSS), Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Joydebpur, Gazipur, Bangladesh during rabi 2011-2012 to select an improved variety of pea as relay crop with monsoon rice for well adaptation and higher yield as green pod for vegetable as well as high biomass for fodder. A total of seven pea varieties for Ishurdi location Viz. BARI Motorshuti-1, BARI Motorshuti-3, IPSA Motorshuti-1, IPSA Motorshuti-2, IPSA Motorshuti-3, Jhikorgacha local and Natore local and five pea varieties for Jamalpur location Viz. BARI Motorshuti-1, BARI Motorshuti-3, IPSA Motorshuti-1, Natore Local, Jikorgachha Local and for Joydebpur location only Natore Local and Jikorgachha Local were included as a treatment in this experiment. The result revealed that the variety Natore local gave the highest pod yield 5,318 kg ha-1, 4,825 kg ha-1 and 2,200kg ha-1 at Ishurdi, Jamalpur and Joydebpur locations respectively followed by Jickorggacha local variety. Maximum gross margin Tk. 1,52,836 ha-1, Tk. 1,45,809ha-1 & Tk. 44,840 ha-1, and BCR 4.04, 4.65 and 2.21 were obtained by the cultivar Natore local at Ishurdi, Jamalpur and Joydebpur locations, respectively. Similarly, cultivar Natore local along with improved production technologies also showed satisfactory level of yield and economic performances at Farmers’ field. It was also identified that, by the inclusion of pea in the  monsoon rice field, lands could be brought under pea cultivation to enhance  pea production, provide human nutrition and also to ensure soil health improvement for sustainable production system.
