Organic Peas & Pea Mixes

Organic farmers are using field peas as a non-GMO protein source, as a companion with oats or barley for forage, or as a nitrogen-fixing plowdown covercrop.

Organic Succotash*

  • Our succotash is a mixture of well-adapted oats, barley, and spring wheat
  • Well suited for hay or combining
  • Good standing
  • Higher protein than straight oats
  • Should be swathed before combining to allow grain to mature evenly
  • Best results when swathed according to oats maturity
  • Seed 80-100 lbs/acre in early spring
  • Blend 70 lbs of peas with 1 bag of succotash for excellent forage or feed

Organic Oat/4010 Pea Mixture (Out of Stock)

  • Our oat/pea mixture is an approximately 55-45 blend (by weight) of a tall, good-standing oat variety with a leafy, forage pea
  • This mixture is intended for forage or silage only; not suitable for grain
  • When cutting for silage, try to cut when the oats are at the boot stage to maximize forage value
  • Can be underseeded with alfalfa (use the lower seeding rate)
  • Seed 100-200 lbs/acre in early spring, approximately 2 in. deep

Organic Barley/Yellow Pea Mixture (Out of Stock)

  • Our barley/pea mixture is a mix of about 50% dual purpose field peas and 50% Robust barley (by weight)
  • When swathed and combined, this makes an excellent animal feed that has much higher protein than straight small grain
  • When cutting for silage, try to cut before the barley heads out (boot stage) to maximize forage value
  • Can be underseeded with alfalfa (use the lower seeding rate)
  • Seed 150-200 lbs/acre in early spring approximately 2 in. deep

Organic DS Admiral Peas

  • DS Admiral Peas are a dual-purpose yellow pea with high grain yields and very good tonnage as a forage crop
  • An excellent standing, taller pea
  • Rated easier to combine by NDSU
  • About the same maturity as Miami and Mozart peas but are more uniform in maturity (50 days to bloom)
  • Seed 50-100 lbs/acre with 75-100 lbs/acre of small grain for grain or forage production. Seed 150-200 lbs/acre straight for grain production

Organic 4010 Forage Peas (Out of Stock)

  • 4010 Forage Peas are speckled forage peas that produce significantly more biomass than DS Admiral
  • Excellent forage yields and standability
  • Taller than Trapper peas
  • Not suitable for grain production
  • Provides exceptional nutrition when chopped in combination with a small grain
  • Seed 50-100 lbs/acre with 75-100 lbs/acre of small grain for forage

Organic Yellow Peas* (Out of Stock)

  • Good yielding dual-purpose pea suitable for grain or forage
  • Good standing and high quality grain yields
  • Good quality and yield as a forage crop

Organic Triticale/4010 Pea Mixture (Out of Stock)

  • A mixture of 50% Spring Triticale* and 50% 4010 forage peas
  • Excellent forage quality for hay or silage. Highest of any of the small grain/pea mixtures
  • When cutting for silage, try to cut when the Triticale is at boot stage to maximize forage quality
  • Can be underseeded with alfalfa (use the lower seeding rate)
  • Seed 100-200 lbs/acre in early spring; approx. 2 in. deep
