It is common to practice to blend several varieties or mix several species together to get a complementary performance within the blend. Whistler winter peas are excellent in blends with other peas. Being a winter hardy, semi-leafless pea matches perfectly with spring peas for a quick fall forage, and with standard pea varieties that have a tendency to lodge and lose forage quality. By mixing Whistler winter peas with cereals such as oats, wheat, rye, or triticale, you will be adding palatability and high quality protein to your forage. The nitrogen fixing capacity of the peas will be complementary to the cereal forage production.
100% Whistler winter peas 30-50 lbs./acre
40% Whistler, 40% Secada, 20% Aust. WP 40-60 lbs./acre
60% cereals, 40% peas 60-100 lbs./acre
Straight peas and cereal/pea mixtures should be drilled between 1 inch and 2 inches deep in a prepared seedbed for best results. They can also be no-till drilled or broadcast, but seeding rates should be increased slightly. If broadcasting, pull a harrow to lightly cover the seed with soil.
