Pisum arvense Cool season legume cover crop. Ground-hugging pea germinates and grows in cooler soils than most legumes and withstands temperatures to 10°F. Good weed competitor, does well in heavy soils, and fixes 70-125 lb of Nitrogen/acre. Grows to 3' if supported. Matures early (April in warm areas), attracting beneficial insects to the growing area at the start of the season. Good protein source in forage mixtures. In most areas, sow in early-mid fall on well-drained soil. Seed at 2-4 lb/1000 sq ft or 70-120 lb/acre. Raw seed, requires Pea-Vetch or Garden Combination inoculant
