DS Admiral Pea Organic Field Pea Seed

Product ID:238G

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

Pea tendrils (the most recent 6-8" of growth) are also great in salad mixes, and the dry yellow peas can be cooked in soup. In spring or fall, sow alone at 3 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (120 lb./acre). Can also be mixed with vetch and/or oats, winter rye, or ryegrass. Peas smother weeds better than spring-sown clover. Inoculate with Garden Combination Inoculant (#7531) or Pea, Vetch, and Lentil Inoculant (#7534) for best performance. USDA Certified Organic. Avg. 2,000 seeds/lb.

Growing Information: 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.
