Also valued for hay and forage because of its high protein content and good palatability. Tolerates light mowing or grazing. Grows to 3'. Similar in habit to Purple or Lana Vetch but lower-yielding and less expensive. Hardy to 0°F. Seed early in fall or spring at 1-3 lb/1000 sq ft or 40-60 lb/acre. Raw seed, requires Pea-Vetch or Garden Combination inoculant
