Iron & Clay Cowpeas

Iron & Clay Cowpeas

Iron & Clay Cowpeas are annual late maturing peas that provide feed for quail & deer in the fall. The deer love the small plants and will sometimes strip a newly seeded area if the deer population is heavy. Cowpeas can be planted from spring through early Fall. The seeds mature in about 90-100 days. Deer will forage on the plants starting with the tender small plants when they first emerge. These cowpeas are also used extensively in the deer forage mixtures on the market.
