Vigna sinensis Warm season legume cover crop.

Great, all-around, summer cover crop. Tolerates moderate shade and can be planted in orchards and vineyards or under-sown with corn. Sets seeds in about 60 days.

  • Application Rate: 2-3 lb/1000 sq ft or 30-40 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: Cowpea inoculant (sold separately)
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 2'
  • Uses: Fixing Nitrogen (up to 250 lb per acre), increasing organic matter, and smothering summer weeds (a thick stand can out-compete Bermuda grass). Can be used for grain, hay or pasture.
