Cowpeas are a 65 - 85 day crop. They do fix Nitrogen. Best used for soil improver, large vines grow and climb everywhere, seeds are colorful and edible. Bush type plant produces heavy yields, unlike other cowpea varieties, iron and clays continue to grow and produce forage after the seed has dropped. Can be planted in fields to attract deer and game birds. Deer love cowpeas. Quail & other game birds relish the seed if the plant is allowed to seed. Drought Resistant.

Cowpea culture:  Cowpea culture is very similar to beans. Plant when the soil is warm. Many view these as a Southern crop but will also do fine further north. They are delicious fresh-shelled and cooked, or you may dry them before shelling and use them as dry beans. They make a rich broth and are an excellent food product. Give some a try this year. 

Add our Exceed Inoculant to the seed just before planting. Plant 60 lbs to the acre or 3-5 lbs per 1000 sq ft.
