We do have Untreated Non Organic Austrian Winter Peas in stock in both 5 lb and 50 lb bags

Pisum arvense- Germinates in cooler soils, withstands temperatures to at least 10°F. It is a good weed competitor, does well in heavy soils and fixes 70-125 lb of Nitrogen/acre. It matures early (in April in warm areas), attracting beneficial insects. If Austrian winter peas are left in until they flower in May, nitrogen fixation may be even higher, up to 200 lb per acre. Mow or roll the crop to kill it after flowering, especially if grown with rye for support, acts as a mulch.

Sow in early to mid-fall at 2-3 lb/1,000 sq ft or 70-120 lb/acre. Many growers harvest the pea shoots and sell them with specialty mixes. Legume inoculant recommended.
Handlers certificates and available from the seedhouse we purchase our organically grown seed from. Once you purchase the seed, refer to the bag label for the seedhouse, then search their web site for their handlers certificate. We recommend that you also save your seed label as you will need it for your certifying agency inspection. We also have some handlers certificates under our Resource page.
