Preferred Peas & Oats



       Preferred Peas and Oats is a blend of 50% high yielding, palatable forage oats and 50% improved forage Canadian field peas.  This balance gives exceptional forage quality and high tonnage.  Used as a nurse crop, Peas and Oats emerge quickly and grow vegetatively at a rapid rate.  These characteristics make a mixture of Peas and Oats an excellent choice for growers that are establishing new seedings.  Peas and Oats will mature (first flower for peas, grain head in the boot for oats) in approximately 45-60 days, depending on weather conditions, producing good summer feed when ensiled
