Field Peas, Forage Pea (order by the pound)

Field Pea

1 lb


Field peas, a cool season legume, are similar to Austrian Winter Peas. These annual peas are often seeded with another small grain and are a favorite for deer food plots and nitrogen fixing, green manure.

 

Field peas prefer well-drained clay or heavy loam soils, near-neutral 5.5 to 6.5 pH (add lime) or above. Plant Field peas at 1 to 3 inches deep to ensure contact with moist soil and good rooting. Field pea can be grown on a wide range of soils, but does not do well in wet, swampy areas.

 

As nitrogen fixing, green manure, peas are easily killed by disking or mowing after full bloom - the stage of maturity that provides the optimum Nitrogen content. Bloom usually occurs about 60 sdays after planting. Plant at 100 to 160 lbs per acre, five pounds plants about 400 sq ft. or a 20 x 20 ft area.
