FORAGE PEAS

Pisum sativum

Forage Pea is an annual, cool season legume with an upright- or prostrate- growth form. Forage Peas have a dual purpose, namely used for grain- and as a diverse forage crop.

Legumes have the ability to fix atmospheric Nitrogen, reducing the N requirements of the species in a blend as well as in the follow-up crop.

 

An annual rainfall of 800 mm and more is required for production, but best productions are achieved under irrigation.
