Farm Seed 4010 Field Pea

4010 Field Pea

Organic Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 92G

Grow alone or in mixes as a short-term green manure.

In spring, sow 5 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (200 lb./acre) alone, or 3 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (120 lb./acre) mixed with vetch and/or oats, winter rye, or ryegrass. 3-4' tall peas smother weeds better than spring-sown clover. Inoculate with #9321 or #9359 for best performance. Pea tendrils add a flair of color to your salad mixes, and dried yellow peas can be used in soups. White flowers. Organically grown. Avg. 3,100 seeds/lb.

Additional Information

This item’s size, weight, or shape requires an additional shipping surcharge based on the shipping location selected. Specific charges will be displayed during checkout.

Peas like well-drained, clay loam soils with a neutral pH (6.5-7.5) and average fertility. Stems are weak so will benefit from being seeded with 1-2 bushels of oats per acre. Can be seeded into rough ground; use 25% more seed than usual. Plant like garden peas: inoculate with proper inoculant, drill or broadcast, and cover 1-3" deep depending on soil moisture. Plants do not regrow after mowing or grazing. Field peas' average nitrogen production is 100 lb/acre.
