What do you know about field peas?

I’ll be the first to admit, this was a first for me – videotaping in a 110-acre pea field. But let me tell you, it was one of the cleanest fields I have ever seen. Farmers are using field peas as a cover crop because of their nitrogen-fixing abilities and their large biomass. The large biomass contributes to improved soil conditions and weed control.

These Manitoba 4010 field peas will be harvested for seed to be used as cover crops this fall. Get a chance to see this field up close during the Doudlah Farms/Dramm Corporation/AgriEnergy Resources Organic Field Day Tuesday, August 11 from 10am-3pm at the Cooksville Community Center, 11204 N. Church Street, Evansville, Wisconsin.
