Iron and clay cowpeas can be used in one of three ways. They can be eaten, nitrogen fixation or as fodder for animals. Southern favorite. Bushy 2-3′ plants bear prolifically. 6-9″ pods with large, creamy-white seeds, 18-20 seeds/pod, easy to shell. Unusually, seeds have a taste between English peas and cowpeas when fresh. A great cover crop for warm weather and Southern growers. Grown much like soybeans. Frost sensitive, but fast growing to 2 1/2′ in warm/hot weather. Sow mid-spring once soil has warmed. Drill at 25-50 lb./acre or broadcast up to 120 lb./acre, 1/2 to 1″ deep. Relatively long taproots help withstand drought. Cowpeas are not tolerant of high weed pressure or wet soils and will perform poorly in these conditions. If planted thickly, they will smother out weeds. Cowpeas can also be used for under-seeding in spring crops and tilled under prior to fall-planted crops. They can produce as much as 315 lb./acre nitrogen, although 130 lb./acre is more typical. High organic matter production. They can also be used as fodder for animals. David’s Garden Seeds is a Veteran owned business that has been offering quality seeds since 2009.
