The Allegheny PeakBlend is a mix of oats, winter peas and radish. This blend of grass, legume and broadleaf accomplishes most of the objectives while minimizing the risks of termination in the spring. Oats and radish will winterkill, which allows the producer to focus only on terminating winter peas in the spring. The ability of winter peas overwintering depends on when they are seeded in the fall. They need to be 6-8 inches to reduce the risk of heaving. Too much growth in the fall can also cause the plants to winterkill. Snow cover and other crops aid in the overwintering process. Season: Cool Season
Seeding & Growth
Precision: Not recommended Drilled: 25 lb/A, 3/4" to 1" deep Broadcast: 31 lb/A Aerial: 36 lb/A
Dates: 3 to 10 weeks before average first frost
Winter Peas - 9 days Oats - 5 to 8 days Radish - 3 to 5 days
Inoculate: Yes, pea or vetch inoculant Inter-seeding: Not recommended
