They contain high levels of carbohydrates, are low in fiber, and contain 86–87% total digestible nutrients, making them an excellent livestock feed. In spring or fall, 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. Harvest for grain at 16–18% moisture or when the seeds are hardened and fully mature.

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.
CULTURE: Sow the seeds at the time and rate specified in the product description. All legumes should be planted 1/4 to 1/2" deep.
FOR GREEN MANURE: For best results, till under when in the flowering stage.
SEED SPECS: Planting rates are listed within each product description. Organic systems should plant 1/3 to 1/2 heavier to allow for some weed pressures.
