Farm Seed Cover Crop Mixes

Peas and Oats Mix

Organic Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 3685G

Easy to manage cover crop.

Mixed to meet our farm manager's preferred percentages of 70% peas and 30% oats. Seed early spring for a spring-through-summer cover crop or late summer through fall for winter cover/mulch. Sow at 5 lb./1,000 sq.ft., or about 120-200 lb./acre. Peas provide nitrogen and organic matter; oats act as a nurse crop and trellis for the peas. Both will winter kill in northern areas if oats are not allowed to re-seed. Specialized equipment, which is often needed for terminating (mowing and incorporating) perennial cover crops, is not necessary. An easy choice for home gardeners. Inoculate with #9321 or #9359 for best performance.

• Edible Flowers: Pea flowers, tendrils, or plant tips can be harvested young for a sweet and tender salad addition. Can be a source of revenue for market farmers.
• Mixture contains 70% 4010 organic field peas and 30% organic common oats.

Organically grown. Avg. 5,200 seeds/lb.
