Cow Peas – ‘Iron Clay’

Productive heat tolerant vining summer-annual legume, excellent drought resistance, low fertility and a range of soils. If left to bloom it attracts many beneficial insects that prey on other pests. Slow to start, so it does well in mixes with other quicker growing species, especially those that are rigid and erect-growing that can serve as a trellis to support its growth (for example, summer grasses like millet and sudangrass). Works well as a forage, especially in a mix. Same as black-eyed peas (dry beans that can be used for human consumption). Recommended seeding rate: 40-60 lbs/A.

Inoculate with peanut inoculant for best results.
