Vigna sinensis Warm season legume cover crop. Great, all-around, summer cover crop for fixing Nitrogen (up to 250 lb per acre), increasing organic matter, and smothering summer weeds (a thick stand can out-compete Bermuda grass). Tolerates moderate shade and can be planted in orchards and vineyards or under-sown with corn. Can be used for grain, hay or pasture, as well as for cover crop and green manure. Some nematocidal effect when incorporated after bloom (100 days). Sets seeds in about 60 days. Grows best (to 2') on sandy loams and well-drained warm soils, but can adapt to most conditions. Will thrive on low fertility soil if the pH is between 5.5 and 6.5. Fairly drought resistant with low irrigation requirement. Seed at 2-3 lb/1000 sq ft or 30-40 lb/acre. Raw seed, requires Cowpea inoculant
