Austrian Winter Pea

A quick-growing legume that can produce 90-150 lbs/ac of nitrogen, Austrian winter peas can be seeded with barley, oats, triticale and cereal rye for improved forage quality. In cover cropping, it can be used with Enricher radish in alternating rows drilled in a mix containing annual ryegrass, cereal grains, and rapeseed after a soybean harvest. Austrian winter peas grow best in lower temperature, moist areas. It will likely winterkill when sustained temps are below 18°F if there is no snow cover.
