Pea – Austrian Winter


The Austrian Winter Pea is a cold weather legume that can tolerate severe winter conditions, if it is planted early in the fall season.  It is used as a ground cover and erosion control aid because it will develop a nodulated, secure, root system that can stabilize soil.  It will not re-grow after mowing or grazing, so it is not ideal for use as pasture forage. Green manure is another common reason for the planting of Austrian Winter Peas.  In spring, just as it begins to bloom, it can be reincorporated into the soil to provide a substantial amount of nitrogen for use by the next crop.
