AUSTRIAN WINTER PEAS
Austrian winter peas are a cool-season annual legume that can produce a great food plot on their own or as an addition to a seed mixture planted in the fall to attract deer. Austrian winter peas form vine-like growth that can reach lengths of 3 to 5 feet when planted in fertile soil. This cool-season annual is highly attractive to white-tailed deer, as well as other wildlife. To establish a solid food plot of Austrian winter peas, broadcast at a rate of 50 to 75 lbs./acre in September through October. Seeds can also be drilled at a rate of 30 to 50 lbs./acre. In northern climates, plant as early as late August or you can also plant in spring to grow winter peas as a summer annual.
