Our 60/40 Pea/Barley blend is a popular spring forage that will exceed other common options in forage quality. Forage Peas are very high in crude protein and digestibility and have good yield when blended with a small grain such as barley. Using a beardless forage variety of barley in the blend provides good dry matter yield as well as superior forage quality to other small grains. Pea/Barley blends are a preferred forage option in limited moisture growing conditions.
- Planting Time: Early Spring, Both Peas and Barley can tolerate any light frost that may occur after planting
