Description

Arvika Forage Peas have been the standard in the forage industry.  It is a high yielding, good forage quality pea.  It produces lavender flowers on a very tall (long-vined) plant.  Arvika Forage Peas produce small seed size (~4,000 seeds/lb.) with very durable seed-coats and excellent seedling vigor.  A small percentage of the seed will remain dormant (hard) and emerge in subsequent years.  Therefore it is important to avoid planting food-grade (yellow or green) pea varieties on ground planted to Arvika for several years (up to 5-7).

Suggested seeding rates:  Seed 80-100 lbs/acre.

Approx. seeds per lb.:  4,000

Seeding depth:  Drill 1″ deep in a firm, moist seedbed.

Preferred soils:  Widely adapted to many soil types, prefer well drained soils.

Establishment:  Peas should be inoculated with a pea/vetch inoculant at planting for best growth and nitrogen fixation.  Plant early spring for best results as peas grow best in cool weather.

Management:  For spring planted peas, harvest in about 60 days.  If planted with a small grain such as oats, spring triticale or spring barley, harvest when the grain is at boot stage for best quality. Otherwise, harvest when peas are beginning to blossom.
